Puma has garnered quite a bit of attention over the last year for their extensive work with Undefeated, but even before the ten packs of Clydes and two sets of RS hightops, the Five Strikes brand was working with the One Star on a variety of releases with their signature upscale streetwear meets modern militia look. Bringing the unique flavor from sneaker boutique to the nationwide retailers is the Converse x UNDFTD for Foot Locker collection, which carries that same slightly aggressive yet wonderfully neutral style on the Converse Pro Leather hightop and Star Player low, a couple of old school basketball silhouettes that are right up Eddie Cruz and co’s alley. Certainly an eye-opening move for one of the earliest trailblazing sneaker boutiques to join forces with one of the largest sneaker retailers over the last two decades, isn’t it? This partnership will definitely increase the awareness of Undefeated’s five-bar tally logo to casual Foot Locker customers across the nation. Click through for more details like the Pro Leathers’ medial zippers, let us know what you think about UNDFTD linking up with the chain synonymous with mainstream sneaker sales, then check out Eddie’s full interview with HS about topics including the March 29th launch.
@smh What doesnt make sense? Shoes that are not as mainstream popular sit on the racks I have seen other undftd collab shoes just sitting on the rack. The store even still had a full size run, and they had been sitting for months. More chances at getting them doesn't mean anything if they are not even looking at them when they are right under their noses.
Everybody won't have them, because hypebeasts will be to busy looking at the JORDANS on the other side of the store.
Well so far for the exclusive !! now any water down no style wearing kid will get them and that will suck,, Well oh we'll
wtf? that doesnt even f*cking make sense...... if hypebeasts will be too busy looking at the jordans on the other side of the store, then wouldn't everybody have more chance at getting [these]?
