Michael Jordan’s game-worn Air Jordan 1 High from the infamous “Shattered Backboard” game has sold for $615,000 USD, while other highly sought-after pairs such as the 1992 Air Jordan 7 “Olympic” Player-Exclusive Game-Worn sneaker sold for a final price of $112,500 USD.
These numbers are nothing new in the sneaker world — back in May, a pair of Michael Jordan’s Game-Worn 1985 Player Sample Air Jordan 1s sold for $560,000 USD with Sotheby’s. And although some of the numbers above seem obscene, other pairs went for relatively humble sums.
For example, a 1990 Air Jordan 5 “Fire Red” Player Exclusive sneakers sold for $9,375 USD — you’d pay more for a pair of brand new Dior x Jordan 1 Highs in the current market — while the Air Jordan 14 “Chicago” sold for $21,250 USD.
You can see all of the final prices from Christie’s and Stadium Goods’ auction on the Christie’s website. Take a look at some of the standout pairs above.
