A champion of the underground, SSUR itself might also be called a quiet storm, having been an influential and constant force in the downtown New York City art scene for the past 15 years. During his reign, SSUR has never stopped exploring complex themes in his often rebellious, provocative and thoughtful expressions. SSUR’s version of the Converse Pro Leather 1976 shoe is no different. Like much of his work, the shoe is black–a nod to the color of asphalt and the grit of the streets. A fitting muse for founder Russ Karablin, the Pro Leather shoe hails from the golden-days of core, urban street-play and holds icon status from its early pro basketball roots.

Its silhouette is constructed of a clean, simple, black nubuck suede upper with subtle perforated Star Chevron branding and a clean neoprene tongue, giving it an unmistakably sleek and refined look and feel. Metallic gold shark-tooth jewelry and an image of a “great black shark” on the foot bed reinforce status on the streets and a metallic gold embroidered SSUR signature and skull and crossbones round-out the overall design of the classic kicks. Developed using a slightly updated model of the classic Pro Leather 1976, this version takes the classic style of the original and incorporates premium, modern updates for comfort and fit. The SSUR for Converse Pro Leather 1976 will launch globally on August 20th, 2010 via SSUR, Undefeated and other select retailers globally.
