The Jordan 13s were worn during the 1998 NBA Finals, specifically game 2. MJ would drop 37 points, 5 rebounds, and 3 assists in the 93-88 win over the Utah Jazz. The sneakers were part of the run to Jordan’s last championship.

The sneakers were gifted to a Utah Jazz ball boy who helped Jordan recover a lost jacket.


“Today’s record-breaking result further proves that the demand for Michael Jordan sports memorabilia continues to outperform and transcend all expectations,” Brahm Wachter, Sotheby’s head of streetwear and modern collectables, said in a statement. “Sotheby’s is extremely proud to hold the world record for most valuable game-worn sports memorabilia at auction and the most valuable sneakers ever sold, both of which — to no surprise — are directly tied to the global icon, Michael Jordan.”
