Since 1917 to the present day, Converse has witnessed numerous cultural revolutions. From the popularity of Negro League teams in the 20s and 30s to being a mainstay in the Rock & Roll and basketball scene, Converse has held down a solid presence across various arenas. More then 30 years ago, basketball received a boost to free itself from its then stagnation. Short shorts, knee high socks, big hair and the Converse Pro Leather would become a uniform for style and innovation on the courts. To commemorate the Pro Leather’s place in basketball and Converse history, the brand has reissued a perfect 1976 replica of the original in five different styles in low and high top versions. Alongside the sneakers are a pack of complimentary items including the aforementioned knee high socks, sunglasses and vintage wash t-shirt.
