Much of basketball icon Michael Jordan’s legacy is tied to his historic run with the Chicago Bulls in the ’90s, but the groundwork of the Hall of Fame baller’s career was laid in the ’80s. In fact, Jordan’s greatness can be traced back to his playing days in college with the North Carolina Tar Heels.

To pay homage to the early days of Jordan’s now-legendary career, Converse and Jordan Brand have teamed up to release an official collaboration to the public for the first time ever.

The two-sneaker pack is made up of the Air Jordan 2, which debuted in 1986, and the Converse Fastbreak Mid, a go-to sneaker for Jordan during his days as a Tar Heel.
