New for Fall 2013 and following the success of the KA-One, Converse presents Kenny Anderson‘s second signature skateboarding shoe: the CONS KA-II. Taking inspiration from Nike SB‘s own signature footwear silhouettes, Converse elected to incorporate a drop-in Lunarlon sock liner for plush, lightweight cushioning while both memory foam and a gusseted tongue allow for a customized fit. Furthermore, CONS’ All Star Traction Rubber outsole has been fused with a Flex Rubber Cup Sole for superior board feel. According to Anderson, “The KA-II skates with a full board-feel, has the support and durability of a cup sole, and I really like the way the sneaker looks and feels on my feet. Even when I’m riding my older, worn-in board, the traction on the sole makes the board feel like it’s brand new.” Complete with a clean suede or canvas upper that’s reminiscent of the understated aesthetic of classic Converse designs, the CONS KA-II is now available online for $60 USD.
