Converse OG Pro Leather: A no-frill street-ready sneaker
Converse OG Pro Leather's origin
First released as the "All-Star Professional Basketball Shoe" in 1976, the Converse Pro Leather High Top made a rapid rise in the basketball industry with its new technology at that time. Erving's endorsement for the silhouette brought it to its peak of fame, and it acquired the nickname, "Dr. J."
The Pro Leather Hi continued to grace the court for the next decade. It eventually stepped out of the game, and its legacy was passed on to the streets. The silhouette made a name and became one of the staple sneakers on the streets.
Throughout the years, it went through different iterations, and the latest release is the Converse OG Pro Leather.
