Michael Jordan's Olympic 1984 Converse

A pair of game-worn sneakers from NBA legend Michael Jordan sold for whopping $190,372.80, smashing a previous auction record for game-worn shoes. Jordan wore Converse sneakers during his 1984 Olympic gold-medal game against Spain. This would be his last game as an amateur and his final contest in anything other than Nike shoes.
The record-breaking Olympic shoes were given to an 11-year old boy after the game by Michael Jordan himself with his signature as well.

This breaks the record set in 2013 for a pair of sneakers Jordan wore in game five of the 1997 NBA finals, which went for $104,765. That game, played 20 years ago today, was also known as the flu game — Jordan fought off illness to score 38 points in the Chicago Bulls‘ win over the Utah Jazz.
