Michael Jordan Made More From Sneakers Last Year Than His Whole Playing Career

  • Posted 32 months Ago

Despite earning an impressive $95 million during his 15-years as a professional basketball player, it looks like Michael Jordan's sneaker earnings just totally eclipsed that figure. According to an infographic by PBS, Jordan raked in a staggering $100 million last year from his signature Air Jordan sneaker, making him the highest-paid retired athlete. It also means he took home a significant chunk of the $34 billion sneaker industry - not bad going for a 52-year-old!

Take a look at the infographic over on PBS.
