A Complete Sneaker Guide To Michael Jordan's Sports Illustrated Covers

Converse Fastbreak

Issue Date: 7/23/1984 

Some of you may be too young to realize that before Jordan signed with the Bulls and Nike he was a self-proclaimed adidas nut and repped Converse during his amateur days. While helping lead Team USA to the gold in L.A. he donned the Converse Fastbreak — not only the last time we have seen Mike in something other than Nike, but the last time we would see the original version of the Fastbreak, as changes were made to the collar and remained on later retro models.
