After teaming up with Jordan Brand to create the Jordan Legacy 312, Don C recently collaborated with Converse on an outlandish retro basketball collection.

Converse tapped the Chicago creative to offer his spin on the ERX-260 basketball sneaker, which was worn by the likes of Magic Johnson in the late ’80s. Utilizing his signature luxe sensibility, Don C reworked the retro court model with an array of premium materials. Each shoe in the range also features “Dons” branding that replaces the traditional “Cons” logo. But standing out amongst its more sport-focused counterparts is a colorway dressed in a striking mix of pony hair, snakeskin, and leopard print.

Set to release in three colorways, the sneakers will also come accompanied by a range of apparel and accessories. Check out the first look above and watch for the Don C x Converse ERX-260 collection to release sometime this holiday season.

In case you missed it, HUMAN MADE and N.HOOLYWOOD joined Converse Japan for an exclusive addict sneakers release.
