Catchy Styles Energize the Converse Basketball Holiday Collection

October 15, 2020 - The holiday lineup for Converse Basketball features new upper detailing and outsole combinations that cut through the court, giving players a mix of silhouettes to stand out and play with their own stylistic flair. 

Three colorway packs round out the holiday releases across the Converse All Star BB Evo, the Converse G4 and the Converse Pro Leather. The Hi-Vis collection adds neon, glow-in-the-dark detailing; the Polar Lights collection brings a cool palette inspired by the northern lights; and the Black Ice collection pairs matte-shine finishes with translucent outsoles.

Converse All Star BB EVO

Inspired by the Chuck Taylor All Star, the All Star BB Evo’s modern profile is highlighted through a range of bright details on the star-chevron branding; the Hi-Vis collection shows off gradients of yellow, purple and orange, while the Polar Lights version includes layered pops of green. Monochromatic black and white uppers serve as a clean base.

Converse G4

In these packs, the G4's collar heights dictate its color volume. The Hi-Vis pack offers a hi-top in white, with subtle branding and a gradually splattered midsole, while the low-top is flooded in yellow, with purple and teal accents. The Polar Lights pack features a black upper with paint-flecked hints throughout the heel counter, the forefoot rand and the star chevron. An icy-blue outsole rounds out the profile.

Converse Pro Leather

The timeless Pro Leather silhouette made famous by Julius “Dr.J” Irving adds neon detailing in Hi-Vis colorways like bright green, orange and coral. The Black Ice collection casts sophisticated styles in either black or white, complete with an ice-blue translucent outsole.
