Worldwide shoe collectors have long recognized the high value of Michael Jordan’s footwear. His iconic Jordans changed the shoe industry and are among the most desired models. Consequently, some Jordan collections would appreciate and fetch significant bids at auction.

It’s unbelievable to think that sneakers from the Jordan brand would fetch such high prices on the market. Michael Jordan famously led his team to victory in Game 2 of the 1998 NBA Finals while wearing a pair of Jordan 13s during his “Last Dance” with the Chicago Bulls.

Sources claim that Sotheby’s in New York sold the game-winning sneakers for $2.2 million. When a pair of Air Ships that MJ once wore sold for $1.47 million, the pair smashed the previous record, which was also held by MJ.
