Converse Rivals Pro Leather X2: A thick-soled star
Converse continues to revive the Converse Pro Leather, a former b-ball icon sported by court legends. The Converse Pro Leather returns with a fresher form, from having a tattered finish to getting a cushioned Nike Lunarlon insole. This time it reappears as the Rivals Pro Leather X2 flaunting an elevated sole.
Converse Rivals Pro Leather X2’s footprints
This Chevron-branded kick is a modified version of the full-leather Converse Pro Leather released in 1976. It created a rich history on the hardcourt as the preferred shoe of slam dunk king Julius “Dr. J” Erving. From basketball, the Pro Leather entered the sneaker game with a street-ready look.

- It's infused with a moisture-wicking and breathable insole.
- It’s built with underfoot padding that dampens shock.
- Just like the original version, it comes with a durable leather structure.
