Converse OG Pro Leather: A no-frill street-ready sneaker

The Converse OG Pro Leather is the trim and low-cut version of Converse Pro Leather High Top. This model carries through the simplicity of its predecessor, creating a street-ready versatile look. This modernized version displays the noticeable premium leather upper with the distinctive One-Star Chevron logo and the debossed gold "Pro Leather" call-out on its lateral sides.

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.
