Popularized by basketball star Julius “Dr. J” Erving decades ago, the CONVERSE Pro Leather returns to the spotlight once again as part of the CONVERSE First String initiative this year. A tribute to Pro Leather’s place in the history of basketball, the project highlights five influential retailers in sneaker culture – CLOT, Patta, Saint Alfred, Stussy, and Boston’s BODEGA.
Like those from Patta x CONVERSE and CLOT x CONVERSE collections of the past, BODEGA will be offering a pair of high-top style, with faux pony hair uppers in camel colorway and premium leather details. A low-cut version, in black leather with perforated accents, will be available as well. Both versions will feature leather laces and accessories to complement the collection. Suggested retail prices set between US$ 100 and US$ 110, both are set to launch as a special Black Friday release at BODEGA on this Friday, November 23rd.
