Michael Jordan Tennis shoes for Men
The guy, whom would rather stay unknown, consigned the shoes he says Jordan wore in the gold medal-winning online game over Spain and on medal stand to Grey Flannel Auctions because of its auction in mid-October.

The footwear tend to be white Converse, the brand Jordan wore at North Carolina, because of a $10, 000 a-year offer which was directed at their advisor, Dean Smith, during the time.
Grey Flannel's Michael Russek said the auction home validated the chain of custody of the footwear by confirming that consignor was certainly a basketball child and being offered pictures of him when you look at the locker room in la. He said that Jordan signed the shoes during the time before handing it on consignor.
If shoes were certainly donned by Jordan for the silver medal game in August 1984, it would be the last set of footwear he wore in an aggressive game as an amateur.
Right after the Olympics, Jordan moved together with agent, David Falk, to Nike headquarters and signed a five-year deal with the swoosh well worth $7 million over five years, including investment.
The rest is history. There were 29 variations of Air Jordans. The current version in addition to retro sneakers create more than $2.5 billion at retail, and Jordan makes about $100 million a year from Nike.
Bidding for shoes will begin at $5, 000, the same cost Grey Flannel started at when it comes to footwear it sold from Jordan's popular "Flu Game" shoes from the 1997 NBA Finals. Those shoes offered for $104, 765 in December, a record when it comes to highest cost ever before paid for a pair of Air Jordans.
