The Air Jordan 1s which Jordan wore in his rookie season with the Chicago Bulls in 1985 fetched NZ$943,000 dollars at auction through Sotheby's New York.

The price is a new world record, overtaking last year's sale of a pair of 1972 Nike running shoes that went for nearly $740,000.

The size 13 shoes are mismatched with the right shoe half a size larger.
