Heads up, sneakerheads! The most beneficial pair of sneakers to at any time be auctioned off is uncovered to be Michael Jordan’s initially sport-worn Nike Air Ships.

Jordan wore the outlined sneakers on November 1, 1984, throughout his fifth pro sport at any time in his rookie time. The Air Ship was the first basketball shoe worn by Jordan as an NBA professional. It was also in 1984 that Nike to start with gave a participant his have signature line of shoes and outfits. The Nike Air Ship will eventually turn into the predecessor of the iconic Air Jordan line we have today—as perfectly as other player collaborations.

Sotheby’s, one of the world’s largest brokers of artwork, jewellery, and collectibles, introduced that the pair will be part of the “Icons of Excellence & Haute Luxury” auction taking place this Oct 24. The sneakers are envisioned to be bought at a selling price between 1 million to 1.5 million pounds.

The most high priced pair of sneakers to be bought by means of an auction residence was Kanye West’s “Grammy Worn” Nike Air Yeezy 1 Prototypes from 2008, which went for $1.8 million. But it was sold privately and not by an auction.
