First introduced in 1976, the Pro Leather was Converse’s first-ever shoe to carry the distinctive logo on a full-grain leather silhouette. With the help of the likes of Julius Erving popularizing the silhouette, the shoe formed the sneaker label’s footprint in the basketball scene in the ’80s and ’90s and has maintained its prominence thanks to its timeless aesthetic.
To truly celebrate its latest come-back, Converse has modeled the Pro Leather on an original archive holding from 1977. As a result, the All Star Pro Leather pack utilizes a stitch-for-stitch design that features reworked tooling for a more comfortable fit.
The pack brings back an OG colorway of “White/Red” for the Pro Leather, as well as a Pro Leather-inspired performance hoop shoe, the All Star Pro BB. Rounding out the collection is a pair of Chuck ’70s. You can take a look at the All Star Pro Leather and Pro BB in the gallery above, and pick up all three pairs from select House of Hoops locations today. A wider release will drop on October 24 via Converse’s website.
