This weekend saw the return of the Converse One Star in the UK; one of the brands staple silhouettes since the 70’s. Following several years out of the limelight, Converse CONS present the updated One Star pro, reworking the classic style it into a skate ready pro shoe for the summer.
The One Star has always been hugely popular with both the lifestyle and skate market, but for its latest iteration, Converse have chosen to focus on the latter. Using the original shape as a guideline, a durable vintage suede has been applied to the upper while a premium leather lines the inner. The iconic Converse ‘Star’ brand logo contrasts the colour of the upper and is located on the lateral and media panels, with each colour option sittng on top of a stark white sole unit. Additional features include a moulded volt lunarlon insole for protection upon impact, tonal lacing, a perforated memory foam gussetted tongue that stops the foot from slipping and finally a lighteweight CONS traction, gum coloured rubber outsole for superior grip.
Arriving in limited numbers, the low profile Converse CONS One Star Pro is available in two colour options of Yellow Bird and Black and is released as part of CONS Quickstrike project. You can pick a pair up for £70 over at Welcome Skate Store, Note and Flatspot.
