Unlike the game-worn and signed "Chicago" Air Jordan 1 High that was auctioned off in May, an even rarer version of the shoe—made specifically for Michael Jordan recovering from a foot injury in the '80s—will be available for bidding soon.
For context, MJ suffered a fracture to his left foot in October 1985, which forced him to be sidelined until March 1986. When he did make his return to the hardwood, Nike created a custom version of the Air Jordan 1 High that included straps on the side for extra stability. Additional details include Jordan's famous mismatched 13/13.5 sizes for the left and right shoe, respectively.
Bidding for this modified "Chicago" Air Jordan 1 High will open on Wednesday, July 22 at auction house Gotta Have Rock and Roll with bids starting at $100,000. The seller estimates the shoes will fetch $300,000 to $500,000 when it closes.
