A pair of Michael Jordan's shoes from 1984 sold for nearly $1.5 million at Sotheby's on Sunday, setting a record for sneakers at auction. The 1984 Nike Air Ships are Jordan's earliest known regular season game-worn Nikes. The shoes, the first pair of sneakers to ever crack the $1 million mark at an auction, officially went for $1.472 million. They were acquired by collector Nick Fiorella. The signed red and white sneakers are from Jordan's fifth NBA game in his rookie season, according to NBC News.
I really hope I'm wealthy enough one day to be able to spend $1.5 millio on some shoes, I would never do it, but I would love the option! lol
