CONVERSE is joining Nike and JordanBrand in celebrating the World Basketball Festival with a special commemorative release, made up of six styles of the brand's Pro Leather model. Three will come in a black leather makeup with unique accent hues, while the remaining three will feature a suede upper in varying colors. Each pair from either grouping represents three tour stops -- Barcelona, Washington D.C. and London -- with an identifying city abbreviation next to the classic Converse Star Chevron log. Look for the kicks at select retailers, and online soon at Converse.com.

Washington, D.C. - Saturday, July 14th
New York City - Saturday, July 21th & 28th
Philadelphia - Saturday, August 4th
