A pair of rare game-used signed custom Air Jordan sneakers — made specifically for Kobe Bryant in 2003 — has just sold for $25,000 … TMZ Sports has learned.

The story behind the kicks is interesting … at the time, Kobe had recently cut ties with Adidas and didn’t have a shoe deal in place.

So Nike — looking to court the young superstar — made him a custom pair of size 14 Player edition Air Jordan VII’s … which he wore during his famous 46-point game against the Knicks on February 6, 2003.

The shoes eventually got to Mike Nguyen — co-owner of the famous IndexPDX sneaker shop in Portland — who tells us the second he put ’em up for sale, he was bombarded with offers from serious sneakerheads.

They sold hours later to a hardcore shoe collector — but Mike says the buyer wishes to keep his ID under wraps.

As for Kobe … he eventually signed a deal with Nike and he’s still with ’em to this day. Guess the strategy worked.
