WSJ News Exclusive | Michael Jordan’s Championship Air Jordans, Sneakerdom’s Most Elite Collection, Head to Sotheby’s Sale


Sotheby’s auction house will unveil on Tuesday in Dubai what many sneaker collectors consider to be the Holy Grail: the “Dynasty Collection,” or six Nike Air Jordan sneakers that Michael Jordan, His Airness himself, wore during the six NBA championship games the Chicago Bulls won in the 1990s.

The price for the collection, on offer in a private sale? Sotheby’s won’t disclose it. But to sneaker collectors, it’s close to priceless: These shoes are like the Mona Lisa, the David and a few of Monet’s Water Lilies rolled into one. Memorabilia experts place their value well into the millions, which would make the collection the most expensive set of shoes ever sold.
