Two must-have essentials from Converse this spring are the Converse Cons One Star Pro and the all-new Converse Cons Utility Backpack for the active guy that’s out with his crew, skating the streets all day and night.

Originating in 1974, the Converse Cons One Star Pro was reintroduced in Fall 2015 as an essential skate sneaker and features updated technology for improved comfort and purpose. A Nike Lunarlon sockliner, Cons traction rubber and a gusseted tongue make fit and function for skateboarding and daily wear a priority, while the simple yet iconic star logo stays true to the classic design. The Converse Cons One Star Pro footwear collection for Spring 2016 introduces three new colorways of this classic silhouette.

New to Cons, the Converse Cons Utility Backpack was designed for the individual that is always on the go and is engineered to hold the essential gear for his all-day journey. With a slim silhouette made from CORDURA® fabric to ensure durability, versatility and reliability, it has been built for optimal storage needs, holding anything from a skateboard to a laptop and more. The backpack features a neoprene-lined interior sleeve and a ventilated mesh back panel for ultimate comfort and breathability. It also comes with an attachable interior kit for even more storage, a side grab handle for added flexibility and a series of detachable patches, allowing for customization and self-expression.

The new Converse Cons One Star Pro collection and Converse Cons Utility Backpack will be available starting January 7, 2016 at Converse retail stores, third party retailers and online at The One Star Pro will retail for a SRP of $75 USD with the Utility Backpack for a SRP of $130 USD.
