Any Michael Jordan-worn sneaker is bound to draw big money, especially if it’s an Air Jordan. But the shoes that set a highest price record for game-worn kicks sport a chevron instead of a Jumpman.
The Converse Fastbreak that Jordan wore as member of the gold medal winning 1984 U.S. Olympic men’s basketball team closed at auction on Sunday morning for $190,373.
This amount beats the $104,765 mark set in 2013, when the black and red Air Jordan 12s that an ailing Jordan wore for Game 5 of the 1997 NBA Finals sold at auction.
The game-worn Converse are signed by Jordan, and thought to be the last pair of shoes he wore as an amateur before beginning his legendary career with the Chicago Bulls.
