Natasha Cloud sat out the 2020 WNBA season to focus her energy on supporting the social justice movement sweeping the world last summer, but she’s back ballin’ in 2021: after seven games with the Washington Mystics she’s clearly shaken the rust off, and also become the first WNBA athlete to receive a Converse PE — namely the All Star BB Evo “Petal To the Metal.” Featuring a blotted multi-color print and a rose graphic inspired by one of Cloud’s tattoos, the “Petal To the Metal” is inspired by Cloud’s ability to “bloom bravely in all areas of her life,” according to Converse. In Cloud’s own words, she “wanted the shoe to signify looking to new horizons, collective growth and regenerating oneself.”

The “Petal To the Metal” features a 5/8 cut upper with a fused mesh construction, dressed in an abstract green, blue, yellow and pink pattern and supported by white synthetic overlays. The heel clip features the aforementioned rose graphic and a Converse spellout logo, both done up in pink, while a signature Converse Chevron in black is embroidered on the lateral quarter. Down below, the white midsole and outsole boast drop-in technology that combines Nike‘s React foam with proprietary Converse foam for exemplary cushioning and court feel.

Look for Natasha Cloud’s Converse All Star BB Evo “Petal To the Metal” PE to release on the Converse webstore come June 3. Its MSRP is set at $120 USD.
