CONVERSE SANTA CRUZ-14

 

In celebration of 40 years of Santa Cruz Skateboards, Converse has collaborated in developing some limited edition skate sneakers.

Long time Santa Cruz Pro and Converse Ambassador Jason Jessee provided the inspiration for the Converse CONS CTS pack in both Mid and Ox. These sneakers feature a classic Jason Jessee skateboard graphic of Neptune on the Lunarlon sockliners, and subtle tonal coral pattern on both the red and the black canvas uppers. The Converse CONS CTS mid is red as homage to the classic red Converse Chuck Taylor All Stars that Jason skated in the ’80s. Both sneakers also feature the Santa Cruz logo beneath clear traction rubber outsoles.

The Converse x Jason Jesse CONS CTS “Santa Cruz” Pack is now available both in-store and online at PackerShoes.com (sold separately).

SPECTRE is a new company that was created through a partnership between Lil Wayne and SUPRA. SPECTRE is a lifestyle footwear brand that is a reflection of Lil Wayne’s multifaceted personality, and is completely separate from SUPRA.

SPECTRE was formally launched at an event in Miami on Friday, May 3. While SPECTRE is influenced by skateboarding (because Lil Wayne is obsessed with skateboarding), it is important to note that SPECTRE is not a skateboard brand. SPECTRE is first and foremost an independent shoe company with touch points to the different components of Lil Wayne’s identity.

Their first footwear offering comes in the form of the Spectre by Supra CHIMERA, available in-store only tomorrow – May 18th @ 12pm noon EST in both the grey/teal/pink & black/red color ways. Retail is $125 USD (sold separately).

Converse introduces the limited-edition Converse CONS Rev Pack featuring Converse Skateboarding’s iconic CTS sneaker. The sneaker’s design was inspired by the brand’s American heritage with subtle design details that give nod to our country’s early culture, including a 13-star colonial flag in the navy CTS and a Union Jack flag in the red CTS. The Converse CTS, adapted for today’s skateboarders, draws inspiration from the iconic Chuck Taylor All Star.

Performance features throughout the sneaker include abrasion resistant waxed canvas, a removable molded multi-density OrthoLite™ sock liner for extra comfort, a traction rubber vulcanized sole and full-memory foam in the collar and tongue for a true customized fit.

A very limited run (8 pairs each color) of  the Converse CONS CTS is now available in-store @ Packer Shoes for a suggested retail price of $65.
