Michael Jordan’s “Shattered Backboard” Air Jordan 1’s


This pair of Nikes worn by Michael Jordan has broken the record for most expensive sneakers ever sold at auction, fetching $615,000. These Air Jordan 1’s were used by the basketball star during an exhibition game played in Trieste, Italy in the summer of 1985 in which Jordan literally shattered the backboard with one of his signature high-flying dunks. The left sole contains a shard of actual glass from the backboard.
