Fresh off of its collaborative collection announcement with Concepts, Converse has now revealed its forthcoming footwear plans for the Spring/Summer 2021 season. This year, the One Star Brand is putting much of its chips into more collaborative partnerships with the likes of COMME des GARÇONS, Off-White™, Kim Jones, Telfar, Tyler, the Creator, Julius Erving, Chinatown Market, Bandulu, Natasha Cloud, Draymond Green and Alexis Sablone, as well as special capsules that focus on basketball silhouettes both classic and modern.

“An important value of Converse is one that respects, honors and wants to continue to foster creativity”, says VP of Footwear Brandis Russell. “Inviting in the collective genius continues to breed innovation for us.”

As mentioned before, several specialized GR collections are on the way, many of which have been unveiled by way of official imagery by the Boston-based imprint. On the way, it has the part two of its “Breaking Barriers” series which entails a Chuck 70 and the classic Converse Pro Leather reworked to match the team colors of Crispus Attucks High School — an all-Black team who won Indiana’s state title in 1955 led by Oscar Robertson.

Next in line is the “Then & Now” assortment which is comprised of All Star Pro BB and the Chuck 70, both of which honor the past and present eras of Converse hoops from 1971 and 2019. The silhouettes are essentially reimagined by trading out each other’s upper constructions so that the retro canvas fabric applies to the All Star Pro BB while the modern quad axial material lands on the Chuck 70.

For the honorable Julius Erving aka “Dr. J”, a Pro Leather that celebrates 45th anniversary of the final ABA season is impending. The high-profile iteration is executed with ABA colors, features swappable chevron logos with a chenille-infused fabric patch that takes the shape of a ball towards the rear.

Lastly, the “Iridescent Pack” is made up of the G4 Low, All Star BB Evo, Chuck 70 and Pro Leather, all items being vibrantly decorated with digitized gradients to represent the expression of modern-day basketball and its athletes.

Prices and release dates have yet to be confirmed, but expect them all to drop via Converse in the upcoming months.

For more sneaker news, the Denim Tears x Converse Chuck 70 has just restocked.
