Space Jam 2: A New Legacy is out now, and that is bringing back some major nostalgia. Now Michael Jordan’s Nike shoes are on the auction block and going for huge money.

These Nikes, worn by MJ in the film could fetch an astronomical figure. They were listed with Sotheby’s auction house and expected to reach $150k to $200k.

Designs by Tinker Hatfield, the shoes are the exact same pair worn by Jordan as he battled the Monstars in the first film. The shoe also features a custom Jordan silhouette only made for this shoe.

They didn’t make many of these shoes to begin with, and this pair was MJ’s Brahm Wachter of Sotheby’s auction said of this incredible item:

“This pair is truly a grail for many sneaker collectors worldwide. It’s coded as a ‘Player Sample’ which means it was cut with Mr. Jordan in mind and to his specifications. However, this pair has been kept in absolutely perfect condition to this day.”

The shoe market is going strong and being a part of that legendary movie will only add to the value. We’ll have to see how high the value of this shoe will really go when the final auction gavel comes down.

What’s the most you would pay for a pair of shoes? Sound off in the comments!
