A luxurious expression by CONVERSE designer Matt Sleep, the CONVERSE Pro Leather “Year of the Snake” Edition celebrates both the upcoming Chinese New Year on the lunar calendar as well as the Chinese Zodiac. Once hailed to be smaller versions of the dragon by ancient Chinese, this YOTS variant features a premium leather upper elaborately patterned in snakeskin details. Logos embossed with metallic gold around the tongue and deep red insole lined its innards, both symbolic of good fortune, CONVERSE also added a special commemorative clear display box in plastic and red satin carrying tote. Priced around RMB¥ 799 or $130, the CONVERSE Pro Leather “Year of the Snake” Edition will available first as a China exclusive release on February 2nd through select retailers like JUICE Shanghai, I.T Plaza 66, I.T Beijing, DEAL Beijing, and DEAL Tianjin.
Release Date: February 2nd, 2013 (Saturday)
