Back in 1917, when basketball players wore belts and the game was void of 250-pound juggernauts like LeBron James, Converse produced their first basketball shoe: the Chuck Taylor All Star. But Converse shoes haven’t really been popular on the professional hardwood since the ‘80s. Today, the iconic sneaker company is looking to re-enter the NBA spotlight with the Converse All Star Pro BB Shoes.

Legendary Nike innovator Eric Avar and Converse teamed up to create these minimalist basketball sneakers. The uppers are built with foot-forming Nike Quadfit mesh technology for a custom fit and Nike’s React core that allows you to execute quick cuts with smooth lift-off to earn two points the old fashioned way. The shoes also have capsules to merge the midsoles and outsoles, keeping your feet closer to the floor for a nimble feel. Visually, its silhouette is reminiscent of the Chuck Taylor and Pro Leather models, but the new high-top BB definitely has a modern vibe. You can get your hands on a pair in May for $140.

Purchase: $140
