A pair of Michael Jordan’s game-worn Converse sneakers that he donned during the 1984 Olympics (for the gold-medal game against Spain) recently sold at auction for a cool $190,373 USD, making them the highest-selling game-used kicks ever.
“The record-shattering price proves that Michael Jordan has no equal in the marketplace for game-used basketball memorabilia,” said Dan Imler, vice president of SCP Auctions, which sold the shoes.
Previously, MJ’s “Flu Game” Jordans held the record for the most expensive game-worn sneakers sold at auction, as they went for $104,765 USD back in 2013.
The aforementioned Converse’s boast Jordan’s autograph and come complete his orthotic inserts. They are also considered the last pair he wore in a game as an amateur, while also accounting for the final time that Michael rocked Converse in an official game, having previously worn the brand’s shoes during his time at UNC.
