Despite the unfavorable reception of the Space Jam: a new legacy the accompanying wave of goods tells a different story. So far we’ve featured a few of them already, like a watch from Kross Studio and a pair of sneakers from Nike. Now fans of the original film have the option of owning the Air Jordan XI Space Jam from GOAT.
If the latest collection from Converse and Nike isn’t right for you, maybe this could be for you. This is if you are willing to pay between $ 150,000 and $ 200,000 or even more before the hammer falls.
Sotheby’s is running the auction in which the Air Jordan XI Space Jam sneakers will undoubtedly be the top prize among collectors. The legendary NBA player presented the shoes for the first time in the final game between him and the Tune Squad against the Monsters.
Only a few copies were made and worn by MJ, but this particular pair remains intact. Except perhaps for his signature in silver ink on the lateral side of the toe of the left shoe. You see, this Air Jordan XI Space Jam is what they call a “Player Exclusive” or “Player Sample” edition.
Another notable difference between the regular version and the Space Jam version is the purple Jumpman logo. You will also notice that the outsoles now have a yellowish tint due to aging. Nonetheless, Sotheby’s says it is in mint condition.
Plus these are Michael Jordan’s size which is 13. Whoever successfully outbids everyone will get the Air Jordan XI Space Jam shoes in a personalized wooden box with dark purple velor linings at inside.
