Blog Photo - Michael Jordan flu game shoes to be sold by Utah Jazz ball boyIf you're a fan of Michael Jordan's sneakers, you know exactly what pair someone is talking about when they refer to the "Flu Game" sneakers.

The last time these sneakers were released was back in 2009, but now there's a pretty special pair going up for sale soon.

The actual pair that Michael Jordan wore during Game 5 of the 1997 NBA Finals will be up for auction, thanks to the former Utah Jazz ball boy who helped get Jordan some applesauce to help keep him on the court.

Preston Truman, the former ball boy, was offered $11,000 for these shoes back when he was 18, and the current value is rumored to be even higher now. Many are speculating that the final price will be at least double that.

These are some of the most iconic sneakers in basketball history, and they're autographed by His Airness himself.

It should be interesting to see how much these go for.
