Converse Pro Leather Oulet

In regards to sneakers that are tied to epic moments in Michael Jordan’s career, there are too many count. But the Converse Pro Leather for Men/Women is most certainly the starting point, because it’s the shoe that MJ himself believed he was coming into his own. To celebrate the 35th Anniversary of the UNC’s 1982 NCAA title as well as last year’s Championship run, Tinker Hatfield and Dan Sunwoo (who just put together the Air Jordan 3 “Seoul”) have created a special Converse Pro Leather that signifies the birth of “Michael Jordan”, the greatest player of all-time. Replacing the traditional chevron star logo is a Jumpman in Tar Heel blue, while heel detailing represents the team uniforms from the championship years of 1982 and 2017.

One of the most famous moves in NBA Playoff history, Julius “Dr. J” Erving’s incredible scoop layup in game 4 of the 1980 NBA Finals against the Lakers, a maneuver in which the Doctor floated in the air through two defenders long enough to scoop the ball around the backboard and over to the other side of the hoop for a reverse layup provided the inspiration for a classic Converse Pro Leather Shoes releasing as part of the 16-shoe “Art Of A Champion” collection.

Converse Pro Leather Sale Texture is the name of the game here, seeing to various placements around the shoe itself: profiles are mostly of the ordinary presentation though their overlaid chevron logos bear a rough texture that dazzles almost as if covered in glitter alone. Then, towards the forefoot, the connection to the animal of choice is extremely apparent as it displays full from the edge of the aforementioned branding all the way to the toe and up towards the tongue.

Elevating its usual neutral stylings to a motif pulled straight out of a safari wildlife, the Converse Pro Leather Oulet reworks its latest installment with a collection of playful patterns and materials. Hinging on a look geared more towards lifestyle usage, this all-new rendition divides its upper into three distinct parts, with the throat/toe box arriving in jet black fashion, allowing the lateral panels separated with flashy camouflage and giraffe patterns to take front and center stage. And as if that wasn’t already enough detailing, the entire upper is treated with pony hair fabrications, giving these Pro Leathers a look and feel that’s textured, luxurious, and buttery all at once. Outsoles are painted in a natural white hue to give these a clean finish.

When one thinks Converse, it’s impossible to not imagine the classics. Buy Converse Pro Leather But with Chuck 70s outfitting the feet of non-sneakerheads to fashion enthusiasts, it’s easy to forget about one of the silhouettes that helped start it all: the basketball-originated Pro Leather. Far and away distinct from what its niche has become, the silhouette, in its OG state, arrives once more backed by the effects of nostalgia.
