New for this season, the Converse Player LT Hi shoes feature in a rad navy / jade stone / egret colourway. Pulled from the Converse archive, this iteration of the classic Chuck Taylor sits in a rubber backed 70’s inspired canvas upper, with the addition of a webbing strap on the side panels and a circular rubber patch displaying ‘Converse Player LT’ test on the inner side walls. Ensuring a redesign with skateboarding functionality at the forefront, an ortholite sockliner is coupled with a PU board in the sole for optimal impact cushioning. Keeping a minimalist aesthetic in mind, the off-white midsole complements the navy upper, contrasted with pops of orange for good measure. Nodding to the vintage design, the archival stars outsole is a fitting finish.
Reaching into the deep Converse back catalogue, the new season skate footwear reintroduces classic models hand-selected by none other than CONS skate team riders Sage Elsesser and Bobby De Keyzer.
