Zion Williamson is one of the hottest name in sports right now, and his shoe-exploding incident last season at Duke was one of the biggest stories of the year.

So, it’s not surprising to hear that a pair of Williamson’s game-worn shoes are going to be auctioned off. Goldin Auctions will be putting the shoes Zion wore in his fourth regular-season game last season up for sale at an auction that begins July 8, 2019.

These shoes are a size 14 black and blue Nike Kyrie 5’s with a white swoosh. In the game against San Diego State at the Maui Invitational, Williamson played for 18 minutes, recording 13 points, 6 rebounds, 1 assist, 5 steals and 1 block.

In a press release, Goldin Auctions founder Ken Goldin wrote:

“Zion Williamson’s sneaker malfunction was the most iconic and memorable moment of the college basketball season and as a result Zion and his sneakers will always be synonymous. Even though these are not those historic sneakers, the fact that he played in just 33 college basketball games and these are his first sneakers to be offered at auction make them a truly special item.”

No doubt, someone is going to pay a pretty penny for this piece of Zion Williamson history.
