Converse Pro Leather Reissue

Originally introduced in 1976, the Converse Pro Leather has quite the pedigree. It was the brand's first full-grain leather basketball shoe to wear the Star Chevron branding and was found on the feet of a number of NBA legends such as Dr. J. This month, Converse brings back the original design with a re-release of the Pro Leather in a stitch-for-stitch recreation of a 1977 archive piece, which Converse says has been remastered with more comfortable tooling. The shoe will be part of an All Star Pack that will include the Pro Leather in a classic white/red colorway as well as an All Star Pro BB and a Chuck 70 that are inspired by the shoe. 

The Converse All Star Pack will be available on October 22nd at House of Hoops locations in Chicago, Los Angeles, Brooklyn, and the Bronx. An online release will hit on October 24th.
