So that happened.

Following its Essentials collection, Converse has released another drop that has us our hands clasped like the prayer hands emoji. 

Borrowing from Nike for a non-cringeworthy throwback, the Pro Leather ’76 is reintroduced. 

The timelessness of Converse combined with the technological innovations of Nike has us giddy at the promise of three drops of the much-loved classic. 

Though it’s been 40 years since the original release, the Pro Leather '76 has been reinvigorated with a Nike Lunarlon sockliner to offer comfort with a contemporary feel. 

It still features the iconic court silhouette and in Triple Black or Triple White, it’s three times the appeal and then some. 

The first drop is available to purchase now. We’ll keep our fingers on the pulse for the next two releases.
