Jordan Brand and Converse will be linking up for the very first time (retail release) to release a special two-pair collaboration consisting of a previously unveiled Air Jordan 2 and a Converse Fastbreak dubbed the Air Jordan x Converse The 2 That Started It All Pack.
The pack is inspired by Jordan’s “Love of the Game”. When Michael Jordan signed his first professional contract it came with a unique clause allowing participation in competitive off-season pickup games. Specifically, this clause allowed for Jordan’s “Love of the Game” (a desire to play anywhere, anytime), regardless of potential liability.
The Air Jordan x Converse Pack will include the previously seen Air Jordan 2 Alumni, and and the Converse Fastbreak Mid. Both models were worn by Michael Jordan during the mid-80s. A UNC-theme is utilized on both models. White leather uppers are accented by the Carolina Blue noted on the branding and heel regions. Michael Jordan laced up in Converse sneakers especially throughout his college tenure at UNC. He even wore the Converse Fastbreak Mid during the 1984 Olympic games. The Air Jordan 2 Alumni is a part of the pack because it’s actually a PE version of the model that Jordan wore (while already a Chicago Bull) for the Carolina Pro Alumni basketball game for charity.

Juan Carrillo, Editor: If this pack ends up having a nice storyline attached to it and the execution of the shoes are done nicely, I’d be more than interested in seeing what Jordan Brand and Converse end up coming up with.
