Basketball legend Michael Jordan’s autographed trainers from 1985 bought for a file $560,000 (£463,000) in an on-line auction.

The Nike Air Jordan 1s, archaic by Jordan at some stage in his rookie season with the Chicago Bulls, were expected to fetch between $100,00-$150,000 at Sotheby’s.

The outdated file became once $437,500 for a pair of Nike’s 1972 Moon Shoes.

Jordan wore mismatched trainers, with the left a size 13 and the faithful a size 13.5.

The Air Jordan 1s were bought by Jordan Geller, who founded the coach museum Shoezeum in Las Vegas.

The sale coincided with a Netflix documentary – The Closing Dance – with leisurely-the-scenes footage of the Bulls’ hunt for a sixth NBA title in the 1997-98 season.

The trainers were bought by auctioneers Sotheby’s on Sunday
