Though Converse’s All-Star Pro BB is poised the footwear imprint’s main on-court offering, the heritage label still has some silhouettes in store for off-court stunting. Three of the company’s ’90s silhouettes have been revamped with contemporary craft, offered in a host of timeless styles and versatile colorways.

Two iterations of the ERX 260 appear in quietly elevated form. Both the Mid and the Ox originally dropped in 1990, and retain the embossed tongue detailing from the OG release. Color-blocking on the Mid help it stand out against the tonal Ox variant, while both sport the lateral side Chevron star and sturdy grain leather uppers. The Mid boasts bold “CONS” verbiage below the ankle opening, with occasional panels of mesh for extra breathability, utilizing the same weighty rubber sole as its low-top counterpart. Finally, Ortholite cushioning and an EVA heel guarantee both styles all-day comfort.

Elsewhere, the Voltage sneaker sports a “Bolt-Chevron” pattern atop its monochrome upper, a jagged stripe realized in both tonal and and contrasting shades. Revived for the first time since its initial release in 1995, the new VLTG is a women’s-only makeup. Bolstered by a special heel arch, SmartFoam cushioning and herringbone outsole making for a sneaker that blends statement styling with comfortable appeal.

Expect the Voltage, ERX 260 Mid and Ox to hit Converse’s website, stores and stockists in August.

Most recently, Converse’s CX-PRO SK HC OX received some subtle upgrades.
