The Top 7 Most Expensive Jordans - AIO BotNo matter what type of sneakerhead you identify as you ALWAYS try to cop the latest J heat! Nike knew the potential behind striking a sneaker collaboration with Michael Jordan. And he definitely did NOT disappoint! The most expensive Jordans EVER preach of the awesomeness of His Airness’ Js!

Although ALL Jordans are, in essence, extremely popular, some colorways and silhouettes just hit differently. And, we like to think it makes for a healthy type of L-therapy to know what you could have had. That doesn’t sound very helpful! But, trust us, it is.

Becoming green with envy is the most effective way to motivate any sneakerhead to up their copping game. But, it also makes you wonder what you did wrong? Lucky for you, we LOVE telling people how they effed-up their cop. Mostly because of “been there, done that” situations.

Why You Missed Out On a Cash-Out

As you scroll through this list of the most expensive Jordans, you’ll probably start getting a few L-related symptoms. You’ll feel a pit drop down to your stomach, your palms will start to sweat, and you might feel faint! Those are all common symptoms of taking a MAJOR L that could have potentially made you RICH. So, why’d that happen?

Here are some of the most common (and most probable) reasons for taking Ls:

This Jordan takes first place on our list of the most expensive Jordans at the moment. Mark Wahlberg wore these kicks to commemorate the opening of the Wahlburgers restaurant in the Mall of America. Later on, he had a release via raffle in which proceeds went to those affected by the California wildfires. Every $10 people donated counted as a raffle entry!

There are only 30 pairs in the entire Jordan existence. ‘Nuff said.

#2 Jordan 4 Retro Eminem Encore – $24,133

Next in line amongst the most expensive Jordans, is Eminem’s 2017 Jordan 4 Encore. This is one of the rarest Jordan 4s ever. So, this Jordan originally dropped in 2005 and they produced only 50 pairs for Friends & Family. But then, 12 years later, we got the Jordan 4 Retro Encore! And, naturally, it was even more limited with a raffle of 23 pairs in partnership with StockX.

In short, there are only 23 pairs of the 2017 Retro Encores currently available in this lifetime.

#3 AJ1 OG (1985) Royal – $14,068

It comes to no one’s surprise that the Jordan 1s are amongst the most expensive Jordans! Finding an Air Jordan 1 that resells for less than $300 is as rare as copping Jordans at retail! But, the OG Jordans in the line of Jordan history takes it to a whole new level. The “Royal” Jordan 1 colorway is the classic colorway in the 1985 promotional photoshoot. The photoshoot led to the iconic Flight Guy image and poster. 

It also features Michael Jordan’s personal favorite colors: black and blue!

#4 AJ1 OG (1985) Chicago – $15,347

At the end of 1984, Jordan played his very first game with the Chicago Bulls against the Washington Bullets. They won 109-93. A year later, upon signing with Nike, Jordan came out with an OG colorway to honor the Chicago Bulls. And so, the Air Jordan 1 OG “Chicago” became one of the most expensive Jordans of all time! 

The Chicago red and white colorway with hints of black on this Jordan perfectly embodies the spirit of the Chicago Bulls!

#5 Air Jordan 1 OG (1985) Bred – $15,000

The Air Jordan 1 OG “Bred” is not only one of the most expensive Jordan, but most costly! The veteran sneakerheads of the industry know it as the ‘Banned’ colorway. Rumor has it that for every game Jordan played in these kicks, he had to pay a $5,000 fine! That’s because the colorway violated the league’s uniform policy at the time. But, Nike kept paying. And, it definitely paid off!

It is the forbidden fruit of the sneaker industry!

#6 Air Jordan 4 Retro Eminem Carhartt – $13,047

The Eminem x Carhartt x Air Jordan 4 is a Jordan with an all-time unicorn status. In other words, very rare Jordan. There’s a very small number of lucky sneakerheads who have actually witnessed these sneakers in person! It dropped in 2015 to select Friends and Family of our dear Slim Shady!

Then, 10 additional pairs of the Jordan were auctioned off for charity on eBay! That’s the only reason why a few made it to the resale market! And why it is definitely one of the most expensive Jordans to date. Not too shabby for B-Rabbit!

#7 The Air Jordan 4 Retro Manila – $10,359

This was an exclusive release at Nike Manila in the Philippines in 2020. The Jordan took inspiration from the city of Manila’s official flag. It was the very first Jordan exclusive to the country which made it very coveted. It also made it one of the most expensive Jordans ever! Even though it is last on this list, the Jordan still brings in five figures in average resale!

The release featured a limited quantity of 150 sneakers only and released via raffle!
