Top-notch cushioning

Nearly all verified buyers are impressed at the cushioning of these Converse BB shoes. According to them, although the foam is not as soft as Kobe ADT Next 360, the drop-in React foam has everything—court feel, impact protection, comfort, and responsiveness. This makes sense given that these high-top Converse basketball sneakers are equipped with Nike's React technology.

They need a few days to feel good

Most of the reviews that had less than 5 stars mentioned the need for the shoes to be broken in. It takes a few days of feeling a bit tight, snug, heel rubs, to get there. 

Dependable traction

Most hoopers are satisfied with the on-court grip on these Converse BB shoes. The dependable traction is brought by its new cup sole design for better traction and added containment.

However, some mentioned that the outsole picks up dust pretty fast and needs constant wiping.

Lace-up for a great fit with the Converse Pro BB

Most verified buyers appreciate these Converse BB shoes for featuring an ultra-light high-top cut that provides the support of high but with the mobility of a low. It also features a traditional tongue and lace-up closure that allow players a customized fit.

Tongue does not stay put

A hooper has said it perfectly: "I miss tongue centering slot." Based on numerous reviews, the tongue keeps sliding to the sides.

Lightweight and durable

Most basketball players are pleased with the shoe's lightweight materials. They are saying that the upper is breathable yet durable. Several also commended the semi-translucent outsole as quite durable that can withstand rough or smooth surfaces.

Impressive support

Equipped with a modern-day canvas, many are satisfied with the All-Star Pro BB for providing responsive lockdown and dimensional stability. In addition to its Quad-axial woven construction, the upper is designed to provide high-impact resistance when making game-changing plays on the hardwood.

With its lightweight, high performance and high traction cup sole that works in conjunction with the sidewalls of the drop-in midsole, almost all verified buyers are satisfied with this shoe's support.

Eye-catching style

Eric Avar did not want to stray from the original style of the Chuck Taylor All-Star. “We're pulling from the purity and simplicity and purposefulness of what that product represented,” he says.

The All-Star Pro BB pays homage to the original Chuck with a minimalistic All Star patch on the medial side. An updated star chevron is displayed on the shoe's lateral side.

Colorways of the Converse All Star

These high-top Converse BB shoes are available in the following stylish hues:

  • Black/White/Black 'Eclipse'

Converse All Star Pro BB 'Eclipse'

The All Star Pro BB 'Eclipse' colorway celebrates Converse's rich basketball history. The black/white split design serves as a reminder when those were the only two colors of the Chuck Taylor available (1934-1971).

Converse All Star Pro BB 'Nocturnal'

In 1987, Converse pioneered glow-in-the-dark designs for the Chuck Taylor All Star. The Converse All Star Pro BB 'Nocturnal' colorway celebrates the brand's decades-long experimentation with phosphorescence.

Reminiscent of the Nike Zoom Kobe 6's 'Grinch' colorway, these high-top basketball sneakers feature a neon green upper that sits on top of a glow-in-the-dark outsole.
