Original Story (02/27/21): Jeff Hamilton’s legendary NBA Championship jackets are the inspiration for the newest collaboration between Chinatown Market and Converse. Focusing on the ’02 LA Lakers and ’98 Chicago Bulls, the two original championship jackets are each applied across the leather upper of the Chuck 70 and Pro Leather.

Jeff Hamilton’s ’02 Lakers jacket celebrates the teams 2nd NBA Championship three-peat with the Lakers’ signature purple and gold and other bold City of Angels-inspired graphics. The maximalist jacket translates onto the Chuck 70 Hi through a black LA skyline and Walk of Fame star style graphics. The Pro Leather features a regal purple canvas with gold accents and palm tree decals, allowing Lakers fans to surely remember the jacket worn by the late, legendary Kobe Bryant.

The Lakers aren’t alone in achieving this title. The Chicago Bulls also won two NBA Championship three-peats from ’91-’98. The ’98 Bulls-inspired shoes offer a Windy City mix of black and red, replicating the Jeff Hamilton jacket notably worn by Michael Jordan. The Chuck 70 Hi features detailing of the Chicago skyline and bold number prints, while the Pro Leather adds Bulls patches as well as bright blue and green detailing.
