Michael Jordan’s greatness in the game of basketball came before his time with the Chicago Bulls, when he made the White and Carolina a legendary visual scheme during his National Championship winning years with UNC. Before the Air Jordan and certainly before Nike, Jordan made iconic the Converse Pro Leather, a historically significant and influential basketball sneaker that has played a major role in what we see today.
To celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Michael Jordan’s National Title in ’82, Converse has teamed up with Jordan Brand for a special collaboration to commemorate Michael’s Tar Heel supremacy, releasing just 23 pairs of this limited edition shoe via auction – after which all proceeds will benefit charity. Could it be a variation of the Converse x Air Jordan Defining Moments samples from 2008? The release date is currently set at Monday, April 2nd, so stay tuned to Sneaker News for more details on this exciting collaboration.
