Before “Jordan Brand” became its own unique entity, Michael Jordan was the face of Nike. Aside from his championship-winning career, the player’s iconic footwear line was inherently prosperous, and today, it remains as one of the most prominent in the industry. But what about the sneakers that were created for — and worn — by the sport’s most iconic athlete during his endeavors? For those who remain curious, collectors will finally be able to acquire a selection of Jordan’s outstanding footwear via Christie’s.

The upcoming sale, dubbed by Christie’s as the Michael Jordan “Original Air” Rarities Auction, will introduce 11 different pairs of shoes from various points in the basketball player’s career. To tease the collection, interested parties have been gifted with three progenitive models, including Jordan’s rookie season Nike Air Ship, 1992’s gold-medal-winning Air Jordan 7 “Olympic,” and a pair of Jordan 14s worn prior to his final Chicago Bulls appearance. The other eight models are slated for a reveal on July 23rd and are comprised of “game-worn, signed, and mint condition items… produced solely for [Jordan’s] use, or both,” according to Stadium Goods brand director Ben Jacobs. Head to Christie’s website for more information on the impending auction.
