Although they’re most known for their roots in basketball and their legendary casual shoes like the Converse Chuck Taylor, Converse boasts a strong skate division as well. Their Converse CONS sub-brand produces rough and rugged skate shoes — and they’re now set to release a collaboration with Hopps Skateboards, a brand known for their clever graphics and high-performance skate decks/wheels. The centerpiece of the two’s collaborative efforts is a Pro Leather mid that boasts special detailing and a clean colorway. The upper is adorned in a black nubuck with a tonal black chevron on the midfoot, while special Hopps detailing appears via a large circle logo on the heel collar and a red lion is embroidered on the lateral heel. White Converse branding appears on the tongue, and the look is then completed with a simple white midsole. In the market for a new pair of Converse? The shoes drop November 3rd for $85 USD at retailers like Premier, and will also be accompanied by a small collection of apparel.
