Zion Williamson’s Game-Worn Sneakers Sold for Almost $20,000

Last week, in an auction at Goldin Auctions, a pair of game-worn Zion Williamson sneakers sold for $19,680. This wasn't even for the infamous torn PG 2.5's.

We all know Zion will draw a lot of attention and will bring a lot of buzz to the NBA. Just the fact that the Pelicans will have more nationally televised games with Zion this season than they had with Anthony Davis in any of the previous seasons says enough. The Pelicans are a League Pass must this season.

Considering sneaker culture is on the rise, and Zion's profile will only grow, this is probably a good investment. But, it still is a bit crazy given the fact he didn't play a single NBA game nor are these from a particularly impressive game.

The shoes in question were worn during Duke’s 90-64 victory over San Diego State in the Maui Jim Maui Invitational game on November 19, 2018. Zion was mediocre at that game - thirteen points and six rebounds.

The largest rookie shoe deal ever signed, shoes being sold for 20k - this is the kind of stuff that can derail a promising player. You need a reliable support system and a genuine love of the game to keep your focus on basketball. Luckily, from all we learned about Zion he loves to hoop, and with David Griffin in New Orleans, we can be confident the Pelicans will provide the leadership a young superstar needs.
