A pair of Nike shoes worn by basketball legend Michael Jordan have sold for a record-breaking $2.3 million at a Las Vegas auction.
The shoes were worn by Jordan during his first season with the Chicago Bulls.
The white and red Nike Air Ships, which were worn by Jordan during his fifth game with the Bulls in 1984, set a new world record as the most valuable game-worn shoes ever sold from any sport when they fetched the top bid.
The shoes have been autographed by the basketball superstar.
The sale beat the previous record of $615,000, which was set when a pair of shoes worn by Jordan during a 1985 exhibition game were sold by auctioneers Christie’s in August 2020.
