Michael Jordan’s NBA title shoes sold at auction for ASTRONOMIC figure

They sold at auction for $8 million a collection of shoes from superstar Michael Jordan when he and the Chicago Bulls won six NBA titles, setting a new record for sneakers worn during games, according to Sotheby’s.

The six Air Jordan shoes — one for each of the last games of the 1991, 1992, 1993, 1996, 1997 and 1998 championships — were sold Friday. Sotheby’s called this collection the “Dynasty Collection.”

“The collection, reminiscent of Michael Jordan’s enduring impact on the world and a tangible expression of his recognized legendary status, is further confirmed by this monumental achievement.”, said Brahm Wachter of Sotheby’s in a statement about Michael Jordan’s shoes from NBA titles. Wachter oversees modern collections for the auction house.

Sotheby’s did not identify the buyer and described the seller only as “a private American collector” who obtained them from a longtime Bulls executive.

According to Sotheby’s, Jordan first gave a sneaker to the executive after he won the championship in 1991 and continued the tradition thereafter. The auction lot included photos of Jordan wearing one shoe to celebrate wins in 1992, 1993, 1996 and 1998.
