Michael Jordan’s 1984 Nike Sneakers Break Auction Record and Sell for a Cool BD500K

Air Jordan’s or Picassos?!

We never thought that old sneakers can compete with old school paintings, but Jordan did it! His game-worn 1984 classic Nike’s have set a new price record at auction conforming that Jordan’s Sneakers can even compete with the fine arts.

It is the highest-paid footwear from any sport ever, and guess who’s the lucky seller? A guy called Tommy who was a ballboy for the Denver Nuggets, the legend goes that Jordan gave him the sneakers after a game during the 1984 – 85 season, ugh we’re so jealous.
