According to the announcement by Heritage Auctions, a rare pair of Air Jordan 1s previously owned by Michael Jordan has set a record-breaking auction price for this model, reaching a staggering $55,000.
It is known that the reason for such a high price is because these shoes were worn by the American basketball legend back in his post-injury period in 1986. The shoes have a number of adjustments to assist in reducing pressure on the eyes. fish and ankles.
According to the auctioneer’s director, Chris Ivy, “There are not many Air Jordans used by Jordan himself on the market. Only a very small number of used Jordans are known, and this one-of-a-kind shoe is undoubtedly the rarest and most coveted pair of its kind. Auction results are the best affirmation.”
Despite setting a record for successful auctions, the Air Jordan 1s are far short of the $190k record also of a pair of shoes once used by Michael Jordan. But these are the shoes that the American basketball legend wore in the 1984 Olympic gold campaign.
