Converse teams up with California-based skater Louie Lopez for a collaborative pair of the Chuck Taylor All Star, inspired his hometown of Hawthorne, California.
The CTAS Pro High-Top features the brand’s skate technology, including CONS traction rubber for grip and durability, as well as Nike’s Lunarlon sockliner for comfort. The upper is made of premium suede, while featuring leather accenting on both the heel stripe and classic Chuck Taylor All Star patch.
The back of the tongue features an intricate map of Hawthorne as a tribute to his hometown, while the city seal is displayed in gold foil on the sockliner. The colors of the upper were also selected by Louie, reflecting the shades of summertime in his home city.
The Converse x Louie Lopez Chuck Taylor All Star Pro High-Top is available now at Converse retail stores and other retailers, as well as online, for $80 USD.
