NEW YORK (CBSNewYork)Michael Jordan may not be playing ball anymore, but he’s still setting records; at least, his shoes are.

A pair of Jordan’s were auctioned off for a world record breaking $615,000.

The signed Nike Air Jordan 1 high tops were sold Thursday by Christie’s.

Jordan wore the shoes during a 1985 exhibition game in Italy.

The shoes also have a story — a shard of glass is embedded in the left one. The result of a backboard-shattering Jordan slam dunk.
