A pair of Nikes worn by Michael Jordan has broken the record for the most expensive sneakers ever sold at auction, fetching US$615,000 (S$840,653). The autographed Nike Air Jordan 1 shoes were used by the basketball star back in 1985 during an exhibition game played in Trieste, Italy, according to Christie’s. Interestingly, a shard of glass remains embedded in the sole of the left shoe, a byproduct of a backboard shattered by a Jordan dunk. Christie’s described the high-tops as “a one-of-a-kind Michael Jordan artifact”. However, it sold below pre-auction estimates of US$650,000-US$850,000. Author – Batman
