In the case of Converse, the brand's new NBA Collection showcases the iconic Chuck Taylor All Star through a trio of thematic iterations.

Each features a leather interior embossed with NBA logos, along with a Converse x NBA woven label under the shoe's tongue.
The Chuck '70 NBA Legend features a luxe variation of the high-top, celebrating the winning legacies of five storied franchises: the Boston Celtics, Chicago Bulls, Golden State Warriors, LA Lakers and NY Knicks.
Finally, the Chuck SE NBA Franchise features 13 NBA teams, each adorned with the respective logos of each franchise embroidered on the tongue, as well as the team name screen-printed on shoe's the mesh upper. Rounding out the details are a Nike Lunarlon sockliner and micro-suede internal lining.
The Converse NBA collection launches on September 29.
