Drawing from the sneaker’s past while pushing the shoe into the future, the Converse Pro Leather returns in two monochromatic colorways. The “Triple Black” and “Triple White” iterations of the newly upgraded Converse Pro Leather ‘76 merge the classic style with a Nike Lunarlon sockliner for added comfort and cushion. The result is a lifestyle sneaker that is at home on the streets of the city, while still maintaining its vintage basketball roots.
Shot in black and white to fuse an old-school vibe with contemporary urban fashion, the Pro Leather ’76 lookbook sees the sneaker photographed against the backdrop of iconic New York City basketball courts. The photos start at the storied Rucker Park, Sarah D. Roosevelt Park and Rutgers Park locations, where you might have expected to see the sneakers when they first dropped 40 years ago, before moving out into the sprawl of the city where you’d expect to see them today.
Take a look at the complete photo story from HYPEBEAST below to see the sneaker transition from its roots on the court to its future in the streets and shop the style for $70-$75 USD at Foot Locker or on the official Converse webstore.
