In 1949, virtually every player in the newly minted NBA wore the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star. Around that time, future NBA legend Julius “Dr. J” Erving was born. He might be famous for dunking from the foul line and rocking the Converse Pro Leather, but the Chuck Taylor is cemented in his childhood memories.
“I know in my first look at basketball on TV, I saw my favorite players wearing Chuck Taylors. That was the shoe to get,” Erving explains. “When you see people who you admire, people who you idolize, you look at them from head to toe…what they have on their feet is big.”
That legacy drives the Converse NBA collection. Launching September 29, the collection represents all 30 NBA teams through three articulations of the NBA Chuck Taylor All Star: Gameday, Legend, and Franchise.
The Chuck ’70 NBA Gameday includes 250 individually numbered limited-edition pairs for each NBA team. Every shoe is made of authentic NBA jerseys and backed with a leather lining. Its leather interior features embossed NBA logos and collaborative Converse x NBA woven labels under the shoe’s tongue.

The Chuck ’70 NBA Legend is a luxe model that celebrates basketball culture for the sophisticated fan. The shoes highlight the winning legacies of five franchises: the Boston Celtics, Chicago Bulls, Golden State Warriors, LA Lakers and NY Knicks.
The Converse x NBA Boston Celtics sneakers honor the franchise's record 17 titles.
The Bulls' six titles are celebrated with application of six triangles, representative of the team's famed strategy, on the heel.
The Converse x NBA Golden State Warriors sneaker honors San Francisco with an embroidered landscape of the Bay Bridge on the upper.
The Converse x NBA New York Knicks sneakers signifies loyalty, proudly displaying a city slogan, "Once a Knick" on the heel.
With 16 championships, the LA Lakers are one of the league’s most successful teams.
The Chuck SE NBA Franchise represents 13 NBA teams, with their representative logos embroidered on the tongue and team name and details screen-printed on the mesh upper. Each outsole is molded to display the given team’s city influence. A Nike Lunarlon sockliner and micro-suede internal lining is included for comfort.
A collection of Converse NBA Apparel is also available, and includes a winterwool bomber jacket with primaloft fill and a hooded coaches jacket, along with Converse Essentials hoodie, crewneck, long sleeve tee and jogger.
