This year's Don C x Air Jordan 2 will be more expensive than the 2015 one, as the shoes be will sold as a pack with a leather Jordan Brand hat.
Leaked images of the packaging reveal a box housing both the shoes and the hat. What's more, Nikestore Europe revealed on Twitter that this Don C Jordan will only be available in pack form.

@itsNate416 Hi Nathaniel. That wouldn't be possible as this style of Air Jordan 2 Retro will only be available as part of the pack.— Nike.com (@NikeStoreEurope) January 12, 2016
What's unclear is just how much the pack will cost. Last year's Don C x Jordan 2 ran $350 for just the shoes and this one will definitely be more expensive. The hat included looks to be a Jordan Brand one rather than a Don C one, which comes as something of a relief for anyone worried about the price (Don C hats usually retail for around $460).
Rumor has it the retail price on the pack will be between $600 and $650.
