Just yesterday, Ronnie Fieg showed off a new pair of his Converse Star Player 75 collaborative designs, a red lowtop edition that Wiz Khalifa wore on Letterman and is set to hit retail on Saturday. They seemed to come out of nowhere after the two hightop pairs released in mid-March and now Ronnie’s dropping even more unexpected heat in the form of a third hightop edition. This new Star Player 75 is done in a tonal colorway with leather laces and a perforated calfskin lining like all the rest, but instead of the rich leather that’s covered those pairs’ vamps, these joints go for premium grey nubuck on the upper. This ice cold look will also be limited to 240 pairs, and just like the reds, they’ll hit David Z’s New York flagship on Friday, April 15th.

Ronnie Fieg‘s impeccable track record has made him one of the hottest sneaker collaborators alive, and he most recently got up with Converse to add a premium touch to one of their classic silhouettes. The Ronnie Fieg x Converse Star Player 75 first appeared about a month ago in two tonal colorups, and if you happened to catch Letterman last night, you probably saw the third of four, total. It was upon the ‘Late Show’ stage that one of today’s hottest rappers, Wiz Khalifa ‘rolled up’ rocking an all-red Star Player 75 Low for which Lil’ Wayne and The Game would have given him props. Click through to see more of this luxurious leather look, plus the video of Khalifa’s performance, and expect the 240 pair run of these exclusively at the David Z New York flagship on Friday, April 15th.
