The NBA Jam x Converse Colab Is Heating Up
Converse have teamed up with everyone’s favourite retro basketball video game – NBA Jam – for a nostalgia-filled trio of ballers. Featuring a Chuck 70, Pro Leather, and All Star BB Evo, this pack is sure to spark fond memories for sneakerheads of a certain vintage.
The Chuck 70 uses the signature hardwood background to cover the upper, before slapping a massive NBA Jam logo on the lateral side of each shoe. The tongue and heel stripe use the static aesthetic from the original game, while a striking aqua hue is used on the outsole and ankle badges for extra punch.
The slightly more understated Pro Leather adopts the popular ‘He’s on fire’ catchphrase and runs with it. Starting with a neat black and white base, the lateral side catches alight with a pixelated flame motif and ‘HE’S ON FIRE’ text in aqua to match the colour on the ankle lining and heel badge.
Images are yet to emerge of the All Star BB Evo, but you can expect an equally enjoyable trip down memory lane.
The NBA Jam x Converse collection is scheduled to hit Converse and selected stockists on August 30. Will you take off for this monster jam?
