A pair of Michael Jordan’s game-worn sneakers has been sold for $615,000 shattering a record set in May by the sale of another pair of the basketball legend’s shoes for 560.000 dollars. The sneakers were a pair of Air Jordan 1 Highs that the NBA megastar wore during a 1985 exhibition match in Italy when he dunked the ball so hard it shattered the glass backboard. “This is the original shoe with an actual piece of the backboard, a piece of glass, in the sole of the shoe,” said Caitlin Donovan, head of handbag and sneaker sales at Christie’s which organized the auction with Stadium Goods.
