Converse will indeed be one of the many footwear companies taking inspiration from this year’s snake zodiac symbol, and they’ll be doing so via the ‘Year of the Snake’ collection shown here. Included in the group are the Converse Cons Pro Leather and the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star, both of which get dipped in snakeskin to varying degrees. On top of that, some additional bells and whistles (rivets and zippers, actually) pop up on a couple to further drive home the premium feel. Hit the jump to check out the collection and look for them at your local Converse spot now (or at Converse online).

Sneaker News Top 30 of 2012

sneakernews top 30 2012 1a Sneaker News Top 30 of 2012

For better or worse, 2012 was a defining year for the sneaker world and all that it encompasses. It was a year that saw certain shoes throw the laws of supply and demand so out of whack, that brands and retailers had to completely rethink the way they sell shoes to the public just to keep the peace. If you were willing to put in some legwork or, better yet, had the right connections, it was a banner year for sneaker enthusiasts. “Must-have” releases seemed to be at an all-time high and nearly every weekend offered up some sort of temptation for consumers. 2012 saw the release of some of the most eagerly anticipated and passionately sought-after sneakers the game had ever seen and it’s safe to say that things will never be the same again.

In between those, there were plenty of other desirable targets along the way, from the special limited editions and collaborations to beloved Retro returns and promising new designs and innovations. There were even a few certified sleeper hits that organically carved out their place among the year’s best releases. Due to an exponentially expanding consumer base and a heightened level of product awareness, you might not have been able to get your hands on every shoe you hunted for in 2012, but there was certainly no shortage of solid alternatives ripe for the picking in their absence.

2012 was a big year for the Converse Pro Leather, so why not present to you perhaps the most bad-arse pair we’ve ever come across? This original pair of Pro Leathers in Carolina Blue and White were worn and autographed by – you guessed it – Michael Jordan. MJ rocked the Pro Leathers during his Tar Heel years, during which he hit an NCAA Championship-winning jumper in ’82; Converse teamed up with Jordan Brand for an insanely limited-edition eBay auction release of 23 pairs of the Pro Leather, but these OGs are certainly rarer than the 2012 version! Peep the images below and check out the complete listing at Grey Flannel Auctions.

Excepting maybe the 1976 debut year, has the Converse Pro Leather ever been hotter than in 2012?  Settling in on a wave of momentum created by similar classic hightops like the Nike Blazer and Vans Sk8-Hi, the Pro Leather has been on an absolute tear of late, ripping off a sizeable quantity of notable collaborations in addition to dope in-house styles in a huge range of colors.  This latest style sees further momentum carry over from Nike Sportswear, as the VacTech construction process is applied to the Converse Pro Leather Vac for a totally novel end.  These feature molded Star and Chevron branding, contrast stitching and D-ring top eyelets, an intriguing new setup available now straight from Converse.
