The cost of Michael Jordan's old Converse runners is enough to break your brain
We get that Michael Jordan is a big deal but we wouldn't pay $50,000 for a pair of shoes even if somebody gave us $49,800 towards them.
Just before the Michael Jordan-Chicago Bulls legacy got underway, MJ was winning gold at the 1984 Olympic Games.
In the Championship game against South Korea, Jordan was sporting this pair of Converse Fastbreak Mid and, after the victory, he signed them and gave them to a ball boy.
Those very same, very grey, very 31-year-old runners are being put up for auction tomorrow with the bidding expected to start at $50,000.
So, ya know, you can either buy a pair of worn-out shoes or a Ford Mustang. Your call!
