Somehow, it was not the highest price ever for Jordan sneakers — a pair from the 1998 Finals and a pair from his rookie season previously netted more — but, according to the man who facilitated the auction, Ken Goldin, they’re an unreal purchase nonetheless.
In fact, the auction expert previously told TMZ Sports back in April that he believed they were simply “the most valuable sneakers of all time.”
Jordan scored 38 points while wearing the Jordan 12s in the pivotal game in Salt Lake City. Despite battling an ailment that left him, at times, completely exhausted on the court, he still was the key reason the Bulls won the game. Chicago would later go on to lock up the NBA title on the heels of the victory.
