It is hard to imagine that someone would actually pay $71,000 for a pair of 30-year-old sneakers, but these aren’t just any sneakers we’re talking about. This pair of Nike Airs was worn by Michael Jordan himself during a famous game in the 1984/1985 season, when the Chicago Bulls won against the Los Angeles Lakers.
After the game, the shoes were signed by Michael Jordan and then given to Khalid Ali, who was a ball boy at the time. He waited until now to put them up for auction via SCP Auctions, and he definitely made the right decision as he got a very good price for them at the end of the event. The buyer’s identity will remain unknown, but we definitely know that he or she is one of the world’s wealthiest and happiest MJ fans.
