Christie’s Is Auctioning Off A Massive Selection Of Rare Air Jordans

Nike’s Air Jordan shoes are, without question, the most iconic line of sneakers in history. There have been dozens of variants released over the years since the original debuted on the feet of Chicago Bulls great Michael Jordan in 1984, and all of them have their adherents. Auction house Christie’s is celebrating the evolution of the Air Jordan with their “Original Air Takes Flight” auction in which a slew of impressive and rare sneakers will be going under the hammer.

The auction includes a number of game-worn sneakers not only from Jordan, but from his onetime Bulls teammate B.J. Armstrong, NBA legend Charles Barkley, and even former New York Yankees pitcher C.C. Sabathia, who sometimes wore Air Jordan cleats games. But as impressive as those selections are, they aren’t the most sought-after kicks up for auction. That distinction goes to offerings like a Black/Red Air Jordan 1 salesman sample complete with the original Nike leather briefcase and sales catalog from 1985, a complete set of original Air Jordans 1-14 — two of which are autographed by Jordan, and most prized of all, an Air Jordan 2 development sample that’s expected to fetch up to $160,000. Christie’s will hold the Air Jordan auction online from June 22 through June 30.
