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.
Too bad they're not a general release. I was looking forward to these too! It's good that it's a charity auction though.
cant really comment on how good or bad these are until real pictures are up. why do they bother putting these pictures up
