Remember how we gave you the heads up on the return of the Converse Aero Jam? As it turns out, those sneakers will only be available at select retailers. Those retailers consists of big-box store players Foot Locker, Footaction, and Champs. And it’s not just the Aero Jam that they’re getting-it’s the entirety of the rebron Converse CONS lifestyle line also consisting of the Converse Anarchy and the Converse Star Player Plus. Continue reading to get a look at the full group and watch for these styles to start to appear at retailers beginning on November 14th.
The Converse CONS Anarchy looks like a lazy man's Converse Weapon that went through a 2010's lifestyle blender. It is influenced by 80's, not 90's "something" culture. The Star Player is not much better. Only the Aero Jam retro (except the change in font and the lack of the 2) has my attention. I hope they did not water it down any when they made it "lighter". When they say "street culture", they should have said basketball culture, because that is where it came from (and what Converse is mostly forsaking).
