Year: 2012

The release of the Converse Pro Leather First String coincided with our store reopening, so alongside the collaboration itself, that marked a special moment for us as well. We are not the ones to mess around with the legacy of certain models we get the opportunity to work on, so for the Pro Leathers we took inspiration from gardening and plant cultivation as a nod to Dr. J and Converse Pro Leather shoe's "roots" in culture. We used earth tones paired with durable, abrasion resistant Cordura material, resulting in highly wearable interpretations of the Converse Pro Leather shoe to be worn in most conditions. The high-top was treated with a tan upper and velour interior with a hit of pink and pink and purple tongue logo. In contrast, the low-top version features a dark green upper with a purple velour interior and white and purple tongue logo. Each pair included a tote bag and matching shirt bearing the special co-branded logo.
