Who should buy the Converse Cons Fastbreak Pro

The Converse CONS Fastbreak Pro is one of those sneakers that pull you in with their subtle chicness. Buy it if: 

  • Moderately baggy khakis are what you like wearing most days.
  • You're after skate shoes that also channel basketball vibes.
  • Kicks whose board tenacity improves with use are what you're after.

Who should NOT buy it

With no issues about its tongue and with its spacious toe box, the Vans Half Cab is something you can get instead of the Converse CONS Fastbreak Pro. There are also no bad reports about the Vans SK8-Mid Pro concerning scuffing, so check it out in place of the featured kick.

CONS Fastbreak Pro: Something to gawk at

The Converse CONS Fastbreak Pro is the receiver of numerous style-related accolades. Here are some of them:

  • "A treat to look at."
  • "Sharp and fresh."
  • "One stylish skate shoe!"
  • "Interesting and unique."
  • "Visually appealing."

Pro-level construction

Many reviewers are impressed with the attention to detail of this sporty mid-top sneaker. Its "workmanship and materials are premium," says one of them. Another individual says that his CONS Fastbreak Pros "do not, in any way, feel cheap or shabby."

But the better news is, this shoe is quite hard-wearing. Sure, its retro upper might sustain some minor scrapes and scuffs here and there, but nothing serious like major cuts and irredeemable holes.

Extraordinary support in every pair

This "absolute must-have" (as one reviewer puts it) is brilliantly supportive, according to several sneakerheads. One of them wore it for 8+ hours and walked in it for a few miles multiple times, yet they didn't end up getting sore or achy feet. It's "supportive for all-day walking," said one other reviewer.

The incredibly supple Converse CONS Fastbreak Pro

One of the CONS Fastbreak Pro's, well, pros is its super-soft and cuddly interior. It's quite "comfortable to cruise around in," says one tester. Its suppleness also persists, making long walks quite pleasant.

Stickiness that levels up

An expert finds the tenacity of the Converse CONS Fastbreak Pro delightful. What he's particularly stoked about is its progressive performance in that it becomes grippier as you use the shoe.

Wardrobe versatility in the CONS Fastbreak Pro

Whether for casual outings or work stuff, the true-to-size Converse CONS Fastbreak Pro simply does its magic style-wise. It "matches almost everything," says a sneaker collector.

Somewhat cramped at the front

There are those who find the CONS Fastbreak Pro rather restrictive around the toe box. It's "a little tight in the ball girth," says a wide-footed sneakerhead.

A shifting tongue

It's been reported that the CONS Fastbreak Pro's tongue tends to slip to the side. This issue forces one sneaker fan to redo the laces every time just to correct the problem.
