A pair of Air Jordan 1 High that Michael Jordan wore in an exhibition match in Italy dated 1985 was bought in an auction for $615,000, the highest sale of any NBA merchandise in history.

Jordan is considered by many as the greatest of all time (G.O.A.T), hence, his game-worn sneakers have been rocking in different auctions.

The Air Jordan 1 High were the shoes he wore when he broke the backboard on a free-way slam dunk.

“This is the original shoe with an actual piece of the backboard, a piece of glass, in the sole of the shoe,” said the head of handbag and sneaker sales who organized the auction, Caitlin Donovan.

The record is a proof that Michael Jordan’s impact to the basketball world is still felt by many fans all around the globe.
