The NBA celebration continues as Converse joins in on the fun. Using the unforgettable Chuck Taylor All Star model, Converse will soon launch three different iterations of the silhouette in Gameday, Legend and Franchise categories. Kicking things off, its Gameday selection will be comprised of 250 individually numbered pairs in representation of each NBA squad. Authentic NBA jerseys will be incorporated within the uppers in addition to leather along its lining.
The NBA Legend selection will be a luxe model that commemorates the history of basketball. Within this iteration you’ll find the successful and rich history of franchises such as the Boston Celtics, LA Lakers, NY Knicks, Golden State Warriors and Chicago Bulls specifically.
The offering’s Chuck SE NBA Franchise will call upon only 13 NBA squads placing each logo on the tongue while the team’s name and extra details will be found on its mesh upper. This section’s main attraction can be found on its outsole as you’ll find special nods to each team’s influence on their respective city.
Lastly, a small selection of apparel will also join the fold as a winter wool bomber jacket will be available in addition to a hooded coaches jacket, Converse Essentials hoodie, long sleeve T-shirt and jogger — all hosting NBA x Converse co-branding.
Scheduled for a launch on September 29 at select Converse retailers and Converse website, further information regarding the drop can be found on Nike’s website. Take a look at some of the pieces above and let us know what you think.
