Jun 21 2017 BY Arron Watson-McNab

With the hype for sneakers growing rapidly, we are here to organise the chaos with our weekly drop of the top pairs releasing in the coming days. To get us started, we take a look at our

Sneaker of the Week – Jordan x Converse Pack “The 2 That Started It All”



JORDAN X CONVERSE PACK The upcoming pack symbolises the first link up between mega brands Jordan and Converse to celebrate the G.O.A.T himself love for the game. Dubbed “The 2 That Started It all”, the pack includes pairs that reference two stops on the historic timeline of Michael Jordan. 

The pack includes the previously seen Air Jordan 2 Alumni and the Converse Fastbreak Mid, which both pay homage to Jordan’s college colours at UNC. Both feature white leather uppers that are accented by the Carolina Blue notably seen recently on the Jordan 11 Lows “UNC”.

But what is the importance of these silhouettes? Where are the Jordan 1’s?…Well the Jordan 2 “Alumni” was actually Micheal first PE (Player exclusive) sneaker. While Jordan 1 was available to all, the sneakers worn in a Carolina Pro alumni charity game, were only seen on the G.O.A.T.’s feet. The converse Fastbreak were a regular feature on Jordan’s route to league and even made an appearance in the 1984 Olympic games.
Both pairs arrive with an abundance of history and will be available on Saturday 24th June from Sneakers n Stuff. Further releases are expected on the 28th June from Nike and END.
