Today, CONVERSE Inc. introduces the Converse Cons One Star Pro in four original colors. First revealed last month in a premium offering, the Converse Cons One Star Pro is a modern refresh of the iconic sneaker, staying true to the 1970s silhouette but enhancing the sneaker with the latest skate functionality to deliver the ultimate in comfort and durability for today’s skateboarders.
Designed to meet the performance and lifestyle demands of skateboarders, the Converse Cons One Star Pro offers all the functional benefits of the Cons skate sneakers, including a molded Lunarlon sock liner for lightweight impact and cushioning, Cons traction rubber for better board grip, and a gusseted tongue for refined fit. The hi abrasion suede upper provides comfort and added durability, while the original colors and design cues, including the iconic star logo, make the Converse Cons One Star Pro instantly familiar.
The Converse Cons One Star Pro sneaker will be available purchase on Wednesday, July 15, 2015 in Red, Black, Navy and Egret for a suggested retail price of $75 USD at Converse, Converse.com and skate specialty retailers worldwide.
