Elton Brand Drops New Converse Kicks in Philly

brand-og2
We were on hand for a great basketball event this past Saturday as Converse Open Gym hit Philly’s Girard College.

Close to 100 ballplayers showed up a for a day of open run put on by the Converse crew – which would have been a great experience in and of itself. This Open Gym was taken to the next level though when Elton Brand showed up.

Elton was on hand to celebrate the release of his new Converse signature shoe, the EB2, which officially drops October 15th at JCPenney stores nationwide. Elton made sure that every kid in attendance received a pair of his new kicks, had their chance to get a picture taken with him, and even threw up the opening tip to start one of the runs.

The EB2 kicks will retail for $50 for kids, $65 in adult sizes.

Check out some of the images of a great day in Philly:

  • chebs

    MAYBEEE bcuz dey knew he was leavin..uh duh idiot

    u think business deals happen LAST minute???

    a year is very understandable for converse to look at their options for new clients, genius

    fucking hell you get some assholes on these threads. Most brands are gonna look to make signature shoes for more than one athelete so they can make more money off of that players name, who else they gonna make a shoe for Hinrich, jameer nelson, fuck no! Maybe they did know Dwayne was leaving and I’m not debating that but he got a shoe because 1 his name was in the news having just signed a new contract with Philly last summer 2 like I said earlier other than D Wade and EB who the fuck else are they gonna make a shoe for and 3 EB is a top 30 (at worst) player in the NBA. That wasn’t some contingency plan for D Wade leaving that was a decision to give a goodnplayer a signature shoe.
