Nike continues to rollout special releases as a part of its “Art of a Champion” collection. Today its Converse division shares official images of its Pro Leather in white and red. Dubbed “The Scoop,” this iteration honors Julius Erving‘s inexplicable ability to adjust in mid-air. In Game 4 of the 1980 Finals, Dr. J managed to pull off one of the most unforgettable layups, scooping the rock under the backboard and up from the opposite side.

Retailing for $100 USD, the Converse Pro Leather “The Scoop” arrives on April 19 at select Converse retailers and Nike SNKRS.
