You’ve already seen the myriad models Nike has lined up for the World Basketball Festival, but what about wholly owned subsidiary Converse? Their flag bearer for the events will be the Converse Pro Leather, a high top that’s been in the spotlight quite a bit lately (most notably with the Jordan Brand x Converse project). The pack promises six pairs total, three in premium perforated leather and another three in suede featuring three letter abbreviations running along the side pointing to specific stops along the World Baksetball Festival (London, Washington DC, and Barcelona). In addition to this set Converse will also be promoting the model through a series of block parties this summer going down in Washington D.C., New York City, Philadelphia and Los Angeles. Click through to check out the pairs and look for these special release Converse Pro Leather’s soon from the All-Star brand.
