Game Worn Air Jordan 13 Has Just Become The Most Expensive Sneaker


When your mom tells you about “this Michael Jordan shoe that just sold for a record amount,” you know it’s something special happening right now. So, let’s back up for a second and breathe. Yes, Sotheby’s (exactly, that Sotheby’s) has auctioned off a pair of Michael Jordan Air Jordan 13 sneakers for a staggering 2.238 million Dollars to an anonymous bidder.

The unique part about this pair is shoe is that Michael Jordan wore these in Game 2 of the 1998 NBA Finals. After trailing 0-1, Michael and the Chicago Bulls had to return to the Utah Jazz’s hostile environment, where MJ’s kids weren’t even allowed to attend because their mother thought it would be too dangerous. After the game, in which MJ scored 37 points, 3 assists, and 5 rebounds in a 93-88 win over the Utah Jazz, he signed the pair with a silver pen. He gifted it to a ball boy responsible for the visitors’ locker room, who found a lost jacket by Michael and returned it, and while doing so, he asked if he could get his shoes after the game, and the rest is history. A 2.24-million-dollar gift by now. Not too bad.

After leaving Utah with one win in the bag and later winning his 6th and last NBA championship with the Chicago Bulls, it was then apparent that Game 2 was the last time Michael Jordan would lace up the Air Jordan 13 in an NBA game. So, this Air Jordan 13 “Bred” that you might have seen in the Netflix show “The Last Dance” would become a unique silhouette that is truly special for a collector.

However, it wasn’t the first-time game-worn Michael Jordan sneakers were sold; Sotheby’s once made a full MJ collection available called “The Dynasty Collection,” a set of 6 individual Air Jordan sneakers, each one worn by Michael Jordan in the clinching games of his 6 career NBA championships. The set consisted of an Air Jordan VI (1991), Air Jordan VII (1992), Air Jordan VIII (1993), Air Jordan XI (1996), Air Jordan XII (1997), and Air Jordan XIV (1998).
