If you thought the prices of new sneakers today were steep, you may have a heart attack when you see how much someone just paid for a pair of Michael Jordan game-worn kicks.

In the tweet from SCP Auctions today, the sports memorabilia experts announced the sale price of the shoe was a world record.

 

As of 3 p.m. ET on June 7, the bidding price for the shoes was up to $144,222.

Jordan’s game-worn, autographed shoes from the 1984 Olympics have appeared on auction sites before, including a listing from Grey Flannel Auctions in June 2015, which had a minimum bid of $50,000.

SCP Auctions has had success with selling other Jordan sneakers, including an autographed white and red Nike style worn by the NBA icon while on the Chicago Bulls during the 1984-85 season. The shoes were worn, according to the auction company, during the pre-game warm-up of the Dec. 2, 1984 matchup against the Lakers.

Other sneakers worn by Jordan auctioned by SCP in the past included a pair of Converse sneakers from his freshman year at North Carolina, and Jordan signature shoes from his 1986-87 season and his highest scoring game in 2003.
