Converse Pay Homage to Rucker Park
Converse just dropped a pack of Chuck 70s that pay homage to one of New York's most iconic parks — Holcombe Rucker Park. NBA fanatics may recognise the location as the court Kevin Durant dropped 66 points on during the 2011 NBA lockout.
Many All-Stars such as Kobe Bryant, Allen Iverson and LeBron James, have paid tribute to the court where Harlem teacher, Holcombe L. Rucker, began a basketball tournament to help less fortunate kids stay off the street.
Sitting atop a thicker, vulcanised sole unit is stronger canvas and added cushioning. Taking inspiration from the bold colours of Summer League team uniforms, pairs sport either bright fuchsia pink or Carolina blue.
