According to Sotheby's, NBA great Michael Jordan's autographed match-worn sneakers from his rookie season fetched a record $560,000 in an online auction.

The Air Jordan 1s, designed for Jordan in 1985 and the first ever signature sneakers, were expected to fetch between $100,000 to $150,000 in the auction that closed on Sunday.

The shoes were sold by collector Jordan Geller, the founder of the sneaker museum Shoezeum in Las Vegas.
