Michael Jordan’s “Flu Game” Shoes Sell for Record $104,000


You heard it right, Michael Jordan’s Air Jordan 12’s have sold for well over $100,000 USD thanks to a friendly relationship that MJ had with Utah Jazz ball boy Preston Truman during the 1997 NBA Finals. Preston acquired the shoes from MJ after the legendary game where he played with the Flu.  These red/black 12’s were personally signed by the icon himself and Thursday morning, shattered the record price paid for a pair of game-worn shoes in any sport.  According to ESPN, “Truman said the proceeds of the auction won’t go to anything ‘overly exciting,’ besides the usual college education fund for his children and car payments. Although he says selling the shoes was never about the money, he has another revenue stream for the future: a pair of game-used shoes Jordan wore in the 1998 Finals.”
