LeBron James’ Space Jam: A New Legacy continues to punch tickets and sell sneakers in 2021, King James’ interstellar instalment coming with an accompanying line of apparel and signature shoes. Still, real one’s know it’ll always be Michael Jordan sitting on the cosmic throne, the OG film again reinvigorated thanks to Warner Bros. new space odyssey.
The sneaker world has picked up on the strong momentum generated by LeBron’s new chapter, with Bill Murray’s ‘game-worn' Air Jordan 2s and Michael Jordan’s Air Jordan 11 ‘Space Jam’ sample both heading to auction in recent months.
Auctioned off by Sotheby’s, the selling price of the Air Jordan 11 has now been revealed, the deadstock sneaker raking in $176,400. Made specifically for Michael Jordan to wear in the aforementioned Space Jam, the Air Jordan 11 was still in deadstock condition, the unworn Grails coming in MJ’s size 13 along with his signature on the left shoe in silver ink. Complete with yellowed soles, the edition is presented in a custom wood and velvet box featuring a laser-etched graphic of the Tune Squad logo.
Bill Murray’s Air Jordan 2 and Michael Jordan’s Air Jordan 11 were some of the most high-profile sneakers in the original Space Jam. But there’s still plenty more to salivate over! Make sure to check-out our ,eight all-star sneakers from the original Space Jam.
