With a large focus of the Sneaker Industry currently focussed on Los Angeles, Converse is paying tribute to the iconic city once again with distinctive collaborative collections by Babylon LA, Rokit, RSVP Gallery and CLOT. Each collection comes as a response to the city’s diverse basketball heritage and utilizes color in their respective footwear and apparel capsules. Centered around the Chuck 70, the Fastbreak, and the One Star, each entity puts its own personal spin on their design – highlighting both the strengths of their brand as well as Converse. The entire collection will be available from Converse.com as well as select retailers on February 10th ranging from $110-$120 USD.
