Originally introduced to the basketball court in 1976, the historic Converse Pro Leather silhouette returns in two monochromatic colorways. The “Triple Black” and “Triple White” iterations of the new Converse Pro Leather ‘76 merge the classic style with upgraded materials. The result is a stylish sneaker that’s at home on the streets, while maintaining its vintage basketball roots.

Shot in black and white to fuse an old-school vibe with contemporary street style, the Pro Leather ’76 lookbook showcases the sneaker against the backdrop of iconic New York City basketball courts. The journey begins at the storied Rucker Park, and moves to Sarah D. Roosevelt Park and Rutgers Park locations; all spots you would have expected to see the Pro Leather when it first dropped 40 years ago, before moving out into the sprawl of the city where you’d see them today. Take a look at the complete photo story above to see the sneaker transition from its roots on the court to its future in the streets, and shop the style for $70-$75 USD at Foot Locker or on the official Converse webstore.
