For those of you who have been reading Sneaker News long enough to remember the tagline “The CNN of Sneakers” knows we don’t get into politics. For obvious reasons, this will continue, and for other obvious reasons, we will make an exception today.
Many of us are elated by witnessing an unprecedented event as Barack Obama was elected the 44th President of the United States of America. Thank goodness Converse decided to commemorate the occassion with an Inaugural Edition pack of Converse CX Professoinal Leather Vulcs. Just like this post, when you wear these, no one will know whether you’re voting for fashion, supporting the President, or both.
Appearing in clean white/black and black/white colourways in both high and lowtops, they are a classy addition to your wardrobe just in time forall the balls tonite. No word yet on any release details, or if they might be an “Obama PE”, so to speak — stay tuned for updates. Pics via Converse Blog
