Of the Jordan memorabilia offered for sale, nine lots totaled $ 931,875, including purchase fees, at the end of a two-week auction period.

The signed 1985 pair of sneakers were described by the auction catalog as “a one-of-a-kind Michael Jordan artifact,” according to global newswires.

The shoes are unusual because the sole on the left contains a shard of glass, which lodged in it when Jordan smashed the glass on the back panel while landing a powerful slam dunk.

Another pair of shoes, which the Chicago Bulls player wore to a game in 1992, sold for $ 112,500 at the same auction, which was hosted by Christie’s in conjunction with the sneaker consignment store. Stadium Goods.

The previous record was set three months earlier when Sotheby’s sold some of the player’s Nike Air Jordan for $ 560,000.

Interest in Jordan and his sports memorabilia has reportedly increased this year since the release of ESPN’s “The Last Dance” documentary series, which follows the legendary player through the 1997-98 Bulls season.
