Known for vivid graphic hits and a bold ethos, LA-based brand PLEASURES has brought its signature style to Converse‘s classic Pro Leather for a unique collaboration. Inspired by punk rock and boasting bold layered detailing, the one-time basketball silhouette worn by the likes of Julius “Dr. J” Irving has been pushed in a bold new direction.

The Pro Leather’s high-cut upper provides a capable canvas for bold printed patterns. Stark white punk-style graphics sit on a black Tyvek base, ranging from a sneering visage to a “Stop Lying To Yourself” hit. Delicate by design, this crinkled construction is made to wear down over time, letting the print gradually fade for a truly individual broken-in style. It’s protected by a translucent outer layer with a Converse Chevron logo that ensures the print doesn’t fade too fast. The rest of the upper is constructed of shaggy black suede with a bold rubberized “PLEASURES NOW” wordmark gracing the heel.

Meanwhile, the midsole features doubled-up detailing, placing the foxing from a Converse Chuck 70 above its standard white rubber construction to further the textured look, and a red stamp on the outsole concludes the stylings.
