Given Nick Trapasso’s Long Beach roots, is there any question why he’d choose a Chuck Taylor sole for his Converse Skateboarding signature model? LBC is one of the homes of the west coast ‘khakis-n-Chucks’ look that can be seen as another of the traditional influences shaping the modern skate aesthetic. So while you’re more likely to see a guy grinding a rail in fitted twill pants than JNCOs, the heart and soul (and sole) remains the same for the Converse Trapasso Pro II, Nick’s second One Star sig. A blacklit colorway as well as a crisp grey/white edition just arrived at select retailers so click through to see more and let us know how these compare to the best skateboarding signatures on the market today.

They got the one piece toe tap, and they put a piece of rubber in the toe so it can lost longer. Throw in memory foam in the tongue and collar and a thick insole. Yup, definitely won't hold up for skateboarding... Need I mention these were designed/tested by a pro skater?
