There’s been a lot of buzz surrounding Converse Skate’s upcoming line of kicks. They’ve managed to do what Nike SB seemed to lack of the last couple of years; keeping it simple. While the models you see pictured aren’t exactly groundbreaking designs, Converse managed to perfect these classics to the point where you might change your skater-gear options.
Converse has made five models available in their skate line: the Pro Leather, which features a chunky skater version of their classic shoe; the CVO, the old-school low-profile pair; the Sea Star, a boat-shoe like model rivaling the Nike SB Stefan Janoski; the Weapon S Ox, a low-top everyday skater shoe; and the Weapon S xhi, a high-top that should really make a mark. This starting-five of skate shoes look very promising – I myself can’t wait to rock a pair. Watch for these to drop at select retailers soon. via Converse.
