Nike‘s “Art of a Champion” collection continues to roll out celebratory drops. This time around Converse takes the stage with a special edition of its Star Player Low sneaker. The upcoming colorway honors Wes Unseld’s determination in the 1978 NBA Finals. After being swept in 1971 and 1975, Unseld would play a key role in winning a championship in game seven against the Seattle Supersonics: the game was sealed by two Unseld free throws on his way to Finals MVP honors.
The canvas upper incorporates off-white with blue and red accents found on area such as the star logo, heel tab, midsole piping and tongue branding. The collection’s sixteen tally is added to the white midsole in gold as the final touch.
Retailing for $75 USD, the Converse Star Player Low “Intangibles” launches on May 17 at select Converse retailers and Nike SNKRS.
