New MJ Olympic Shoes 1

What’s rarer than the rarified air of a pair of Michael Jordan game-used shoes? A pair of Michael Jordan game-used Converse shoes — and the latest pair of shoes from the 1984 Olympics to sell via SCP Auctions went for nearly six-figures at auction following a record-setting sale earlier this year. This time around, it was a size-13 pair worn earlier in USA Basketball’s march to gold that sold on Sunday for $88,644.

SCP Auctions will offer one of the most significant artifacts from Michael Jordan’s legendary playing career later this month:   the Converse shoes he wore in the 1984 Olympic Basketball Gold Medal Game—the last pair of sneakers Jordan donned in competition as an amateur.  A 21-year-old, baby-faced Jordan led Team USA in scoring at 17.1 points per game during the ’84 Games. In their 96-65 victory over Spain at The Forum in Inglewood on August 10, 1984, Jordan scored a game-high 20 points while sporting the classic Converse sneakers that are expected to sell for at least $50,000.
