Today, Converse Inc. announces the launch of the Converse First String Standards Dr. J Pro Leather. Honoring the legend of Julius “Dr. J” Erving and the shoe he made history in, Converse recreates the classic silhouette in a premium crafted version.
The original shoe launched in 1976, the Pro Leather shoe is not only the shoe that Dr. J made famous, it’s the shoe that ushered in the modern era of basketball footwear.
Only 168 of the white/navy version will be available of the Converse First String limited-edition collection.
Having a pair of these back in the day with the Red brings back so many memories!
Another of my favorite pair of kicks is set to get a new release in the upcoming weeks, the Adidas Campus 80's. The update comes in a clean nubuck colorway which keeps this old school kick classy.
