Who Wants A Pair Of Michael Jordan’s Game-Worn Sneakers That Were Once Owned By Mike Tyson?
Over the years, we’ve seen all kinds of sneakers that have been sold for thousands of dollars at auctions. From game-worn sneakers that were once worn by NBA players during big games to sample sneakers that were signed by the pro athletes that they were designed for, sneakers are obviously a really, really big business these days. So it’s not a surprise to hear about a crazy pair of kicks being sold at an auction for a lot of money. But even with all of that being said, the sneakers that you see here are unlike any other pair of sneakers that you’ve ever seen auctioned off. They are truly one of a kind, and you’ll never see another pair like them out there.
So what makes these sneakers so damn special? For starters, they are a pair of Air Jordans that Michael Jordan himself wore back in November 1997 during a Chicago Bulls game. But wait, it gets even better. They also feature MJ’s signature on them. But wait, it gets better! As if that wasn’t enough, the Air Jordans also feature an inscription made out to Mike Tyson that says, “To Mike, Stay Strong.” How cool is that? Tyson apparently gave the sneakers to his former assistant Anthony Harris, who in turn decided to auction them off. They are a size 13 and have a lot of noticeable wear on them, given that they were worn during an NBA game.
If you’re interested in possibly purchasing these sneakers, they are up for sale right now through Goldin Auctions. The bidding started at $2500 and, as of right now, they only have one bid on them. But the auction won’t end until the middle of next month, so you still have plenty of time to think about whether or not you want these. If you’ve got the money, they might be worth a purchase because you definitely will not find another pair like this. Take a closer look at some more photos of the sneakers below, and then let us know whether or not you would be interested in copping these.
