The shoes — a pair of game-worn Air Jordan sneakers from 1985, which was Jordan’s rookie season — sold for $560,000 at an auction at Sotheby’s in New York

A private collector bought the vintage shoes.

“We are extremely excited about today’s record-breaking result!” said Brahm Wachter, Sotheby’s director of e-commerce development, in a press release. “Building off the momentum from our debut sneaker sale last year, which previously set the record for a pair of sneakers with the Nike Moon Shoe, we wanted to set the bar even higher for our second sneaker sale. We saw tremendous bidding up until the moment the sale closed, with the value more than doubling in the final hour alone. That coupled with strong international bidding from six countries on four continents shows not only the incredible appeal of Michael Jordan as one of the most recognizable and legendary athletes of all time, but also that sneaker collecting is truly a global and growing market.”Ten different people from four different continents bid on the shoes in an online auction that went on for 10 days, according to Sotheby’s. The bidding battle heated up in the final 20 minutes.

The shoes — estimated to sell for $150,000 — sold for more than $410,000 more than projected

The shoes are in different sizes, though, according to NBC News. Jordan wore mismatched shoes during his career so the left holds at a size 13 and the right is a 13.5.
