Golden Auctions just held an event for selling Zion’s game worn shoe with a minimum bid of $7,500.
A pair of size 15 Nike Kyrie 5’s, black, white and blue detailing in Blue Devils colors, from 19-year-old Zion Williamson that he wore last season when he was a Duke freshman just sold for almost $20,000.
Earlier in the year during a Feb. 20 game against UNC-Chapel Hill Zion’s Nike PG 2.5s busted open. While $19,680 is a crazy amount, Goldin Auctions founder Ken Goldin said the busted PG’s could be worth up to $250,000.
The most expensive sneaker was sold last month, a 1972 Nike Waffle Racing Flat “Moon Shoe” went for $437,500. The shoe was bought by Canadian entrepreneur Miles Spencer Nadal at an auctioned set up by Sotheby’s and Stadium Goods.
Miles isn’t even a sneakerhead, he just wanted the shoe for collection purposes.
Zion was drafted No. 1 overall by the New Orleans Pelicans in June and announced a sneaker deal with Jordan Brand in July. According to Forbes, the star’s contract could cover up to seven years and payout $75 million.
All this and he hasn’t played one NBA game yet.
