The basketball great wore the “Bred” Air Jordan 13s during Game 2 of the 1998 NBA Finals on the way to his sixth and last NBA championship title.

The online sale cements Jordan’s position as the most valuable athlete at auctions for sportswear memorabilia.

It broke his own record of $1.5 million for sneakers, set in September 2021.

Last year, one of his jerseys sold for $10.1 million, the most ever paid at auction for any game-worm collectables.

“Today’s record-breaking result further proves that the demand for Michael Jordan sports memorabilia continues to outperform and transcend all expectations,” Brahm Wachter, Sotheby’s head of streetwear and modern collectables, said in a statement.

Jordan wore the sneakers for the second half of the Chicago Bulls’ 93-88 victory over Utah Jazz on June 5, 1998.
