Remastered essentials: the CONVERSE NBA APPAREL COLLECTION celebrates the brand’s rich basketball history.
While the famous Converse Chuck Taylor is generally seen as a lifestyle shoe now, back in the day (1949 to be precise) it was the on-court footwear of choice for the vast majority of NBA players. Since then, the star logo has blessed the feet of many a basketball pioneer – think legends like Dr. J – and the brand is celebrating this legacy with the forthcoming NBA CHUCK TAYLOR ALL STAR COLLECTION which features limited edition runs of the classic shoe in the colours of each NBA team.
To complement the footwear collection, Converse also have a strong range of clothing up their multi-logo-print sleeve. While the shoes adopt the NBA team colours, the apparel sticks to a starker black-and-white colour palette which provides the perfect canvas for the iconic Converse and NBA logos. Elevated fabrics and construction bring a sophisticated touch to the Primaloft-insulated winterwool bomber, while the hooded coach jacket comes with multiple logo hits at front, back and sleeves. The hoodies, sweatpants and and crewneck sweatshirts are embellished with embroidered logos, and the long-sleeve tee boasts multiple sleeve prints for a contemporary take on retro sportswear. Each item is finished off with a classic dual-branded woven size label, providing the finishing touch to an extremely well-executed capsule collection.
