Converse Return to the Hardwood With the All Star Pro BB

At long last, Converse are finally re-entering the realm of performance basketball kicks with a brand new silhouette that pays homage to the brand’s iconic heritage.

Dubbed the All Star Pro BB, the new kicks are a clear descendent of silhouettes like the Chuck Taylor All Star and Pro Leather. The drop combines retro-inspired style – including the All Star logo and the Chevron Star combo on the medial and lateral sides, respectively – with a little Nike innovation. While the upper is constructed from a single layer of QuadFit mesh (also utilised by the Swoosh’s Adapt BB), cushioning comes in the form of a drop-in React midsole. Other details include reinforced eyelets and a diamond-shaped outsole tread pattern that extends up to the textured toe bumper.

Stay tuned for more concrete release details, but expect the All Star Pro BB to debut in May.
