These are what the shoes should look like (Credit:

How do you fancy owning a unique pair of Air Jordan’s, worn by the basketball legend himself?

Well, if you have around half-a-million dirhams to spare they could be yours.

A pair of Michael Jordan’s Air Jordan 1s Nike shoes, designed for the former NBA star in 1985, are up for auction at Sotheby’s. 

The first-ever signature trainers, autographed by Jordan, are expected to fetch between AED 367,000 and AED 550,000.

That’s despite them showing wear and tear having been worn by the American, who was playing for the Chicago Bulls at the time.

The white, black and red sneakers also come as a mismatched pair, with the left shoe a size 13 and the right a 13.5.
