Having now firmly established themselves as one of the key driving forces in current skate culture, Converse introduce us to a rework of one of their more favourable silhouettes from the 1970’s, the Converse One Star.

For Converse, every day is a journey where creativity is unleashed on a hard, unforgiving landscape. Energized by the grit of the city and a distinct U.S. east coast street style, Converse Cons is brought to life through function built for skateboarding and is about the style and creativity of these individuals who are raw, creative and tough.

Continuing to secure an unchallenged following and with ambassadors such as Jason Jessee, Mike Anderson, Kenny Anderson, Zered Bassett, Jake Johnson, Aaron Herrington, Ben Raemers, Don Nguyen & Eli Redd among a host of other up and coming stars, consistently representing Converse in an increasingly positive manner has resulted in CONS now being one of the key footwear choices for most skateboarders.
