Will LeBron James' NBA Finals shoes be worth as much as Michael Jordan's?

Published Add your comment

The iconic shoes worn by Michael Jordan during the 1996 NBA playoffs have been put up for auction it has emerged today.

The classic black-and-red Air Jordans are expected to sell for thousands of dollars after one of the legendary player's opponents on the Chicago Bulls' run to the title in '96, Seattle Supersonics' Eric Snow, advertised them via Grey Flannel Auctions.

The sneakers themselves were worn by Jordan during Game Three of the Bulls-Supersonics series back in 1996 and it is fair to say the NBA great was on fine form that night.

Jordan managed 36 points in total, alongside three rebounds, two steals and five assists - a total which included three-of-four from the arc and a 100 percent night from the free throw line. As if to make the shoes even more appealing to sneaker-heads and general NBA fans around the globe, the right sneaker is signed by Jordan himself.

The price I hear you ask?

If you have the spare cash lying around and feel like making a run for the shoes you can find the listing via this link - but be warned, after only three bids the going rate stands at $6.655 with 14 days left of bidding still to come.
