Puma has garnered quite a bit of attention over the last year for their extensive work with Undefeated, but even before the ten packs of Clydes and two sets of RS hightops, the Five Strikes brand was working with the One Star on a variety of releases with their signature upscale streetwear meets modern militia look. Bringing the unique flavor from sneaker boutique to the nationwide retailers is the Converse x UNDFTD for Foot Locker collection, which carries that same slightly aggressive yet wonderfully neutral style on the Converse Pro Leather hightop and Star Player low, a couple of old school basketball silhouettes that are right up Eddie Cruz and co’s alley. Certainly an eye-opening move for one of the earliest trailblazing sneaker boutiques to join forces with one of the largest sneaker retailers over the last two decades, isn’t it? This partnership will definitely increase the awareness of Undefeated’s five-bar tally logo to casual Foot Locker customers across the nation. Click through for more details like the Pro Leathers’ medial zippers, let us know what you think about UNDFTD linking up with the chain synonymous with mainstream sneaker sales, then check out Eddie’s full interview with HS about topics including the March 29th launch.
