Today we can show you the special limited edition pack featuring Converse and Michael Jordan which is also signed by the legend. It’s hard to believe that MJ wore anything other than Nikes but 30 years ago he was wearing Converse sneakers in his Freshman year and to commemorate the occasion, the two brands have teamed up on this special pack.
To celebrate its 30 year anniversary, 30 limited edition commemorative packs each containing a pair of Converse shoes and UNC jersey were commissioned. Each numbered pack includes a pair of shoes and a jersey, both personally autographed by Michael Jordan. The pack will never be sold at retail. The Converse shoes are in Michael Jordan’s size, 13. A certificate of authenticity will be included.
All proceeds benefit the James R. Jordan Foundation. The James R. Jordan Foundation exists to strengthen families, motivate youth, ensure high quality educational opportunities and improve global healthcare.

Brooklyn-based painter José Parlá uses the Converse All-Star silhouette as his canvas for a worthy cause. This piece is for World AIDS Day as it merges fashion and art.
Using the Chuck Taylor All Star shoe as a canvas, Parlá chose his painting “Ephemeral Pitches, and Notes, Rhythm and Phonetics” to grace the shoe’s upper. A striking work, the painting explores constant changes to urban lifestyle and was inspired by abstract noises, music, rhythms, languages and sounds of cities. Selected by Parlá in recognition of the change that is part of the mission of (RED), the painting’s themes also represent a nod to Parlá’s days of youth wearing Chuck Taylor All Star shoes to play basketball, dance and have fun.
Only 500 of the José Parlá for Converse (PRODUCT)RED Chuck Taylor All Star shoes will be available, beginning on World AIDS Day – December 1, 2011 at Converse First String retailers globally.
