Converse CONS has readied team rider Alexis Sablone‘s One Star Pro AS in a crisp new “Obsidian” colorway, and also brought a similar palette to a skate-ified iteration of the Fastbreak Pro. Blending boarding, basketball and casual style in equal measures, the latest offerings from Converse‘s skate subdivision are a simple-yet-rich amalgamation of heritage and subculture.

Alongside Louie Lopez, Sablone is one of the most prominent members of the CONS crew, and her signature One Star boasts a supple navy nubuck upper with white contrast stitching and a cut-out white star on the quarter. Special embellishment is provided by a gold foil “ALEXIS” stamp on the lateral forefoot and a raised rubber toe cap for extra durability. Traditional midsoles equipped with a CONS heel badge and brown rubber outsoles finalize the look.

Originally released in 1983, the Converse Fastbreak was originally marketed as a lightweight basketball shoe, and was even Michael Jordan‘s preferred model through the course of his college career with the UNC Tar Heels. More recently, it’s been tapped for a CLOT collaboration and appeared as part of the “Think 16” pack, but here it’s all about skating. Uppers are made from blue nylon and leather, with a bold white Chevron front and center. White collars are trimmed with “Ghost Green,” and white midsoles/gum outsoles round off the look.

The Converse CONS One Star Pro AS and Fastbreak Pro “Obsidian” will release on the Converse webstore come June 17. The former is priced at $75 USD, the latter at $80 USD.
