The shoes you see above are a pair of the Converse Fastbreak Mid that Michael Jordan actually wore for the 1984 Olympic Games. That’s history right there. One lucky and wealthy collector can now call himself the owner of these bad boys when he/she won them at an auction for the grand total of $190,373.

SCP Auction had an auction last night and the Converse sneakers you see above sold for close to $200K. Does that sound like a lot for a pair of used game-worn shoes? Well, it’s actually the new world record for game-worn shoes from any sport. The record was held by the actual Flu Game 12s that Jordan wore back in the 1997 NBA Finals. Those sole for close to $105,000.

“The record-shattering price proves that Michael Jordan has no equal in the marketplace for game-used basketball memorabilia,” SCP Auctions vice president Dan Imler, told ESPN.

The size 13 sneakers were retrieved by a ball boy who worked the Forum during the game.

In your opinion, are these sneakers more valuable than the actual Fly Games?
