As I sit here and write this, I’m actually wearing these EXACT shoes—of course, mine weren’t the same ones that Michael Jordan wore during the 1991 NBA Finals against the L.A. Lakers, but they’re still pretty cool, right?
And, for those who have LOTS of disposable cash laying around to buy the kicks that MJ had on when he won his first of six NBA titles, be my guest at trying to make these your own, because they’re going up for auction.
With Jordan’s signature on both shoe, the pair will surely fetch a cool return—even if they are beat to shit from the playoffs that season.
In fact, according to the Chicago Sun-Times, some big-time Jordan fan could spend at least $20,000 for these:
The pair comes autographed and with a certificate of authenticity, according to the auction house.
Although the shoes are in need of some restoration, Sports Collectors Digest projects the pair to bring in around $20,000.
An impressive haul, but it won’t come close to matching the most expensive pair of Air Jordans. According to Finance Online, the shoes worn during Jordan’s “Flu game” – Game 5 of the 1997 NBA Finals – went for more than $100,000 in 2013.
The auction opens Feb. 27th, so start saving your money and start bidding, bros!
