Charlotte hero and NBA star Michael Jordan did it again. This time, with an ultimate throwback.

A pair of Michael Jordan’s shoes from 1984 sold for nearly $1.5 million. This happened at Sotheby’s on Sunday which set a record for sneakers sold at auction. Yes, some old sneakers sold for more than the average person will ever make…in a lifetime.

The 1984 Nike Air Ships are Jordan’s earliest known regular season game-worn Nikes. These shows were the first pair of sneakers to ever crack the $1 million mark at an auction. How much did they officially sell for? The buyer purchased them for officially $1.472 million.

They were acquired by collector Nick Fiorella. The signed red and white sneakers are from Jordan’s fifth NBA game in his rookie season, according to NBC News.
