Michael Jordan’s Infamous ‘Flu Game’ Sneakers Sell for Mind-Boggling $105,000 [VIDEOS]

Michael Jordan Sneakers
Grey Flannel Auctions

Air Jordans have never been cheap, but you may be surprised to learn how much one pair recently fetched.

The sneakers Michael Jordan wore during the so-called ‘flu game’ — Game 5 of the 1997 NBA Finals in which he scored 38 points, despite being sick — sold at auction for a staggering $104,765 on Thursday. That’s the most ever paid for a pair of kicks worn in any game in any sport.

MJ’s Chicago Bulls took down the Utah Jazz in that game en route to winning the NBA title.

The sneakers were put on the auction block by Preston Truman, a former ball boy for the Jazz. Jordan gave the shoes to Truman after the game.

It’s unclear who won the sneakers.
