Most sneakerheads were at least somewhat familiar with the inspiration behind last July’s Nike SB Dunk High Premium ‘Born in the USA’, but can you pick out the Bruce Springsteen connection with the above pictured new release? Before the aforementioned 1984 classic, the Boss’ biggest hit to date was 1975’s Born to Run, upon the cover of which Springsteen is pictured with his signature Fender Telecaster strapped overtop a Schott leather jacket. The company has been making fine leather goods for nearly a century now so this Schott x Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Leather Jacket seems a fitting match. These joints are done in rich navy blue leather with a bronze zipper running the eyelets and another on the heel. Are they better than the memorable (PRODUCT)RED edition or last year’s Schott black suede pair?
