Following to the summer release of the ‘80s-inspired Fastbreak, Converse revamps the Fastbreak silhouette in a Mid Zip rendition for winter. First introduced in ’83 on street courts that influenced the ’80s trends, the Fastbreak Zip is designed to be lightweight and breathable — featuring foam-backed nylon for supported cushion. Its premium Riri zipper functionality makes for an easy slip-on. Available in black, white, and antique brown colorways, the new edition also sports a waterproof leather upper and Thinsulate lining upgrades to brave the winter season.

Check out the visuals above and head over to Converse’s official site to purchase the Fastbreak Mid Zip on Tuesday, December 5 for $150 USD.
