Jordan x Converse
Posted on April 3, 2012 by Textbook
30 years ago, Mike Jordan, who was 19 years old at the time, became Michael Jordan by hitting the game winning shot for North Carolina in the 1982 national championship game. This very historical sporting moment was when the world was truly introduced to the greatest basketball player of all-time.
To commemorate this legendary moment, Jordan and Converse have commissioned 30 limited deluxe hardwood boxes containing a pair of Converse Pro Leather Mid LTD sneakers and a Michael Jordan University of North Carolina jersey. 23 of these packs are now up for auction on eBay, each autographed by none other than His Airness, making this amazing package that much more incredible.
What’s particularity great about this action is that all the proceeds will go towards the James R. Jordan Foundation, which is a foundation that aims to provide educational opportunities for children who live in underserved communities.
As for the Converse Pro Leather Mid LTD, it has been reproduced with Jordan and North Carolina in mind, adding some awesome new detail to the sneaker.
With the auction already underway, I would suggest those who are interested to start thinking about making a bid. For everyone else, enjoy the video and images provided below.
