The Converse Fastbreak sneaker will return to North America this summer for the first time since 1983 in multiple colorways — red, purple, and green. Converse asked the lads of PAQ, a new show about streetwear and fashion to shoot a lookbook and episode for its return. Complete with ’80s muscle cars, tracksuits and oversized, colorful fits, PAQ fully delivers the nostalgia associated with the original silhouette. An undeniably iconic basketball sneaker that influenced the ’80s trends, the new iteration of the legendary court shoe maintains its vintage look while sporting some modern features including Lunarlon foam technology, leather uppers, and a padded nylon medial — all of which are engineered to make it one of the most lightweight basketball sneakers around.
Check out the ‘80s-inspired lookbook honoring this retro sneaker above. Then, check the PAQ video below and head over to converse.com to get your hands on the Converse Fastbreak for $85 USD.
