The NBA has a long history of collaboration with Converse, and it’s certainly fitting, considering the footwear brand’s prominence within the world of professional basketball. The historic Chuck 70, for example, boasts one of the longest lineages in the history of the sport, and now, the high-profile pair have been co-opted for an All-Star-Game-honoring collection.
The Converse x NBA’s latest endeavor will place a spotlight on the 1988 All-Star Game, which pitted players from teams like the Boston Celtics, Los Angeles Lakers, Seattle SuperSonics, and Chicago Bulls against one another in an ultimate battle of skill, teamwork, and showstopping gameplay. The 38th Annual game was one of many iconic events in the long-running history of the sport, and as such, Converse has decided to honor the teams (and individuals) involved with its very own sneaker capsule, emphasizing the colors, patterns, and iconography of each aforementioned team atop its classic canvas silhouette. Head to Converse’s website to check out the Celtics, Lakers, Bulls, and SuperSonics sneakers — all of which are currently listed for sale at $100 each.
