Following the success of its previous collaboration with UNDFTD (UNDEFEATED),  CONVERSE will be introducing a more comprehensive collection this season. Spearheaded by James Bond and Eddie Cruz of UNDFTD, the collection revolves around the catch phrase of “Born Not Made”, a notion that personal success comes not from entitlement or something to be bestowed upon. Rather, its from the in-born drive to take risk, to work hard, to succeed. Drawn references from iconic basketball silhouettes within the CONVERSE archive, both CONVERSE Pro Leather and CONVERSE Star Player will be the anchors of the collaboration. Clad in either ballistic nylon or MA-1-esque construct, both certainly bear the trademarks of UNDFTD, if not the resemblances of its past collabs, through and through. In addition, the limited collection will include apparel and accessories in similar design concept.

The UNDFTD x CONVERSE – “Born Not Made” Collection will be available exclusively through select Foot Locker retail locations in the U.S., Canada, and Australia starting this week. In the meantime, we caught up with CONVERSE designer Matt Sleep and talked briefly about the project, which you can see here.

I recently moved back to the S.F. bay area and have been appalled by the "Attack of the 'Jordan". I grew up in the 90's, so I can appreciate what the man brought to the game. I'll even admit there's one or two styles I Might sport. But there should an issued warning that comes with the shoes (the Jordan's) at time of purchase. "Surgeon General warns: wearing this shoe repeatedly has been proven to cause lack of individuality, tunnel vision, a false sense of pride, and even DEATH...". Now seeing a shoe like this blue low top of the "Undefeated" collection is a breath of fresh air! Thank you Converse and Matt Sleep!!!
