Converse has just teased an upcoming collab with the ’90s arcade smash hit NBA Jam.

Comprised of the classic Converse models: the Chuck 70, All-Star BB Evo, and Pro Leather, the collection features bold colors and retro-inspired graphics directly from the video game. Gradient hues of teal and red land on the shoe along with pixelated artwork that sees the Star logo converted into the classic flaming basketball from the game. “HE’S ON FIRE” lettering rounds off the video game theme.

Pricing will sit at around the $120 USD mark with a release date slated for August 30.
