A pair of shoes worn by NBA legend Michael Jordan early in his career have sold for over $1.5 million at auction, breaking the previous record for game-used footwear.

The iconic athlete wore the white leather shoes with the red Nike swoosh and soles in the sixth game of his rookie season with the Chicago Bulls, when Nike’s Jordan-affiliated brand was just getting off the ground as a sensation on and off the court.

“The most valuable sneakers ever offered at auction — Michael Jordan’s regular season game-worn Nike Air Ships from 1984 – just sold for $1,472,000 in our luxury sale in Las Vegas,” according to auction house Sotheby’s.
