Michael Jordan's trainers sell for record $1.47m at auction

A pair of trainers worn by the US basketball star Michael Jordan have sold for a record $1.47m (1.1m) at auction.

A slot jackpot is the biggest prize prepared to SLOTXOgive away the winners, and it's also the best thing that a chancer wants so much because it's about winning a slot game that earns a lot of money, just a few spins.

Jordan used the pair of red and white Nike Air Ships during his first season with the Chicago Bulls in 1984.

That was the year he and Nike began their collaboration to create his signature brand of clothes and shoes.

The price is the highest ever paid for game-worn footwear from any sport.

Jordan is seen by many as the best player in the history of basketball.

The shooting guard, who spent most of his career with the Chicago Bulls, became a global icon and helped raise the NBA's profile around the world.

Jordan, who retired in 2003, also became the first billionaire player in NBA history.

"This record-breaking result for the Jordan Nike Air Ships affirms the place of Michael Jordan and the Air Jordan franchise at the pinnacle of the sneaker market," said Sotheby's Brahm Wachter after Sunday's auction in Las Vegas.

The signed trainers were bought by Nick Fiorella, a well-known collector.

Before the auction, they had been estimated to sell for between $1m and $1.5m.
