Before the NBA Championships, MVP Awards, and All-Star Game appearances, Michael Jordan achieved the pinnacle of greatness at UNC, when he won the National Title in 1982. If you thought Michael was clutch with the Bulls, his go-ahead jumper with 19 seconds to go in the winding moments of the game gave Dean Smith and the Tar Heels the victory – a moment that wrote Michael’s name in the history books and began a legend that would later sprout into the greatest basketball career of all-time. During that game, Michael Jordan wore the Converse Pro Leather, but as soon as he arrived into the NBA, Michael would connect with Nike in a partnership spanning nearly three decades and twenty-seven signature models, but as a special treat, Jordan and Converse are getting together to commemorate one of Michael’s greatest on-court moments in history.
Jordan and Converse team up again for another game-winner – the Jordan x Converse Commemorative Pack. Each pack is numbered (just thirty Packs are made) and features an autographed North Carolina jersey as well as an autographed pair of the special edition Jordan x Converse Pro Leather sneakers. All of the shoes are Michael’s sneaker size of 13 and the jerseys are all size 40, and only twenty-three of the thirty packs will be up for bidding (seven went to Jordan’s friends and family), with all proceeds going toward the James R. Jordan Foundation. Continue reading for a detailed look at the Jordan x Converse Commemorative Pack and if you’re interested in placing a bid, the auctions are now live on eBay!

You cant even wear the dam shoes! There signed by michael f*cking jordan! Youd have to be retarted to actually wear them in public!
I hate post about shoes that are more restricted than nuclear weapons. I mean...why mention it??? No one can get close to these unless you know mike. Gtfoh with that. If it doesn't concern us customers, don't even bother posting it. Pls n thank you. Thumbs down all the way for that reason alone.
Let's keep it real hypebeast all your paying for is the box,, u could buy same converse for probably 29.99 and go to Nike.com Or eastbay and buy the jersey F*** the box and a tag that says 30 out of 9 ,, and I bet sneaker news won't post this !!! F*** it
People are basicaly going to pay all this money for his auotgraph. If I cannot wear the sneakers or the jersey, they are of no use to me. If they want to do something good in the world they should take all the proceeds & build suitable living conditions for the people who are basicaly slaving to make them .... I truly love kicks, but what's right is right.
Such a corn ball, this isnt a box with a jersey and sneakers you wear, its a commerative!! But dont worry because you probably wouldn't be able to purchase it even it it weren't hypebeast material. Only people with a real passion for jordan and with $$$ will be able to purchase these. My guess is rich athletes, actors, and some huge fans. There is a difference between a pair a kicks and piece of history. Its a story in a box, read a book....
Yeah because you can always get your best friend or your mom to forged MJ's signature on the jersey and shoes for you....smack yourself. You're paying for a piece of history. He misses that shot and there's a possibility Mike Jordan ends up a role player on UNC for the next 3 years after because he can't make clutch jumpers. Everything is not H Y P E just because people like it. This is worth whatever H Y P E it comes with...
can you say clean out your bank accounts?? lol SMH to those who do... the bids on this are going to be, and get ridiculous...honestly this is worth more then those blackout 11s... and if those went for what 12,000 i believe? this is worth atleast 25,000 now i don't believe the blackouts are worth 12,000 i don't believe anyyyyshoee is! but i say this is worth 25,000 cause if blackouts are 12,000 these are sooo much more important...SMH to those to spend that much on 1 shoe...lol...
Nike I'm not stupid but I wud think someone in marketing wud suggest a gr b/c tht wud be more money and maybe a cople with hidden jerseys with the wooden box like just 30 special ones not just 30 flat tht creates more demand than just having only 30 pairs
Collectors are coming out the woodworks for this one, people with real money. Not necessarily shoe collectors... Sports memorabilia at its finest.
