NBA x Converse Chuck Taylor "Franchise"
Converse NBA - a new sneakers collection!
Fresh release that we'd like to show you today, is an outcome of Converse and NBA teaming up. It is a sneakers collection dedicated to the top world-famous basketball teams of NBA league.
While preparing this collection, the brand's designers adapted the very first basketball-dedicated sneakers - legendary Chuck Taylor model - which were released precisely 100 years ago! Here's how legendary NBA league basketball player Julius "Dr. J" Erving commented on both the round anniversary and the related kicks collection:
„I know in my first look at basketball on TV, I saw my favorite players wearing Chuck Taylors. That was the shoe to get" - said Erving. „When you see people who you admire, people who you idolize, you look at them from head to toe…what they have on their feet is big.”.
Converse and NBA heritage - re-iteradted
Coverse and basketball's common heritage became a source of inspiration for the presented Converse x NBA collection, coming in 3 variations: Gameday, Legend and Franchise. Chuck SE NBA Franchise is a series of sneakers representing 13 top teams of NBA league. Each of the teams' logo is placed on the shoe's tongue. The meshed uppers are on the other hand covered with models' names written in basketball jerseys' inspired font, additionally completed with various details connected with NBA league teams. The users comfort is secured by Lunaron insole and a microsuede lining used in the shoes' production.
