At long last, Converse are finally re-entering the realm of performance basketball kicks with a brand new silhouette that pays homage to the brand's iconic heritage.
Dubbed the All Star Pro BB, the new kicks are a clear descendent of silhouettes like the Chuck Taylor All Star and Pro Leather. The drop combines retro-inspired style – including the All Star logo and the Chevron Star combo on the medial and lateral sides, respectively – with a little Nike innovation. While the upper is constructed from a single layer of QuadFit mesh (also utilised by the Swoosh's Adapt BB), cushioning comes in the form of a drop-in React midsole. Other details include reinforced eyelets and a diamond-shaped outsole tread pattern that extends up to the textured toe bumper.
Stay tuned for more concrete release details, but expect the All Star Pro BB to debut in May for $140.
