The impending Sotheby’s auction of Michael Jordan’s game-worn Air Jordan 13s is set to shake the world of shoe collecting.

The shoes, which MJ wore in Game 2 of the 1998 NBA Finals, are set to smash the global record for the highest amount ever paid at auction for a pair of footwear. 

Sotheby’s established the previous record in 2021 when it sold a pair of Nike Air Ships for $1.472 million.




MeiGrey, the NBA’s certified authenticators, validated the provenance of these AJ13s. 


The shoes are photo matched to Game 2 of the 1998 NBA Finals when Michael Jordan wore them before passing them to a ball boy.

MeiGrey has confirmed a full pair of Jordan sneakers used in a Finals series for the first time. 

As a result, the shoes are projected to cost between $2 and $4 million.




As part of Sotheby’s ‘VICTORIAM’ collection, bidding on these AJ13s will begin on April 3 and end on April 11.
