Release Details: P.J. Tucker x Converse Pro Leather Hi ‘Out Tha Mud’
Release: 28 January 2022

Colourway: Out Tha Mud

One of the most well-respected sneakerheads in the game, globetrotting hooper and 2020 NBA champion P.J. Tucker has certainly revealed some Grails over the years, including diamond-encrusted Air Jordan 1s, exclusive Yeezy-inspired Nike Kobe 6 PEs, and a mountain of other rare releases he recently put up for auction on eBay.

His latest collaboration with Converse has also been a long time coming, the Converse Pro Leather Hi inspired by his adolescent hooping in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Dubbed 'Out Tha Mud', the colourway pays homage to his decades of hard work. Hoping to hoop for the University of North Carolina, the sneakers are emblazoned with a blue tongue tag. On the right tongue tag, burnt orange is represented, an allusion to P.J. Tucker’s eventual landing spot at the University of Texas (where he won Big XII Player of the Year).

Down below, faux-worn soles recall P.J. Tucker’s time spent getting up shots in the backyard (where his sneakers would cop a beating from the mud).

Look for the PJ Tucker x Converse Pro Leather Hi 'Out Tha Mud' to launch January 22 at a pop-up in Miami, followed by an online release on The Better Generation app. Foot Locker and Converse will follow on January 28. 17 pairs will also be signed by P.J. Tucker himself and will be shipped out randomly to those who buy from the online launch. The sneakers will retail for $95.
