Creative EVOlution of the Converse All Star

Converse has long cemented itself as a pivotal player in sports and streetwear fashion through its iconic sneaker releases like the All Stars and One Stars. Times are evolving, so do some of its silhouettes rooted in basketball.

After passing through the hands of Nike’s legendary designer (not to mention the man behind Kobe’s signature shoes, plus a lot more), the all-time favorite Converse Chucks gets a complete makeover. The product is the past-meets-present high-top All Star BB Pro EVO that’s spun with a street-ready vibe via the low-top, two-faced All Star BB EVO.

Upper. Traditional canvas is replaced by fabrics, which gives it a two-faced aesthetic. The outer side gets a tightly woven jacquard-like textile arrangement for containment and security during movement. The inner side receives a loose mesh treatment that allows air to flow freely. There's also a knitted version of the ASBB EVO in an iridescent colorway that offers a roomier toe box.

Midsole. A contoured slab of Nike React Foam serves as underfoot shock protection. This removable structure also keeps the foot closer to the ground for enhanced maneuverability.

Outsole. A diamond lug pattern with superior grip on high-wear areas replaces the customary waffle-looking sole.
