Recently, a pair of Retro Air Jordan III Kobe PE that were made as a sample for Kobe Bryant himself surfaced on eBay in an auction. The eventual buyer splashed out $30,400 USD for the shoes, which come in Kobe’s size (US 14) and were produced on November 26 2002 according to a tag on the tongue. The Jordans are listed as coming in the “Home White” colorway, which also features gold and purple detailing, referencing the LA Lakers colors. There’s no news yet on which collector has forked out the money for these kicks, but whoever it is has got their hands on a once in a lifetime pair. Head over to eBay to see the full listing.

These aren’t the first pair of rare sneakers to make big money on eBay recently, with a sample of Nike‘s unreleased ZoomX Vaporfly Elite hitting the site for $10,000 USD.
