Original Air Jordans up for Auction

An original pair of Air Jordans, with Michael Jordan’s autograph, are up for auction.

The Air Jordan 1s were designed for Jordan in 1985. With his signature they are expected to fetch around $250,000NZD.

Like most of Jordan’s basketball shoes, they are a mismatched pair in a size 13 (left) and size 13.5 (right).

The shoes will be auctioned online by Sotheby’s in New York. The auction closes on May 17,

Sotheby’s is a famous auction house. Last year they had their first auction dedicated entirely to sneakers. It set a new world record of $437,500 for a pair of 1972 Nike running shoes, known as the “Moon Shoe.”

The auction coincides with the 35th anniversary of the Air Jordan brand and the screening of the last episode of the 10-part ESPN television documentary “The Last Dance”.
