Thread Starter 
Didn't see any official thread yet for Converse, figured it was long overdue.  Here we can share any and everything Converse.  


Latest Converse x Nigo Addict Series

Would love to see an accurate re-retro of these

They should of retroed the Rodman kicks when he went into the HOF

BTW if anyone knows where I can find these still please let me know, last time I saw them was the very early 2000's.  Here's a pic of me with them from 1994

Yeah you are better off playing bare footed...Chucks are not basketball shoes...they were just the only option for players back in the hay days.

Funny thing is my friend came up to the gym wearing chucks. I was like your ankles are gonna be done. He said these are better then jordans and Nike ect. He said they are more free moving and easy on your toes. I looked at him like he was crazy but he didn't show any signs of uncomfort or pain. I'm not trying however because I know I'll roll my ankle.

Newest collab between Converse and Undftd, exclusively at Footlocker. Pics are from Sneakernews.

The Star Player EV looks really nice

Can anyone get me some skus for the undftd x converse shoes????
post #24 of 356

A retro of the magics would be great for sure but looking at a few old bookmarks on my web browser I think Converse had good things coming up in their 2009-2010 line-up. Too bad they gave up on the SICKS, WEAPON EVO and DROP SHOT. These had a great design with a classic feel mixed in while offering a good performance (according to reviews). I regret having slept on those !

I got my Auckland Racers the other day. I wear an 11.5 in Nike Frees and just about everything else. I ordered and 11.5 in the Converse and they fit perfect. Pics to come tonight.
I'm about to let go of a ton of Size 11 stuff...

thanks! i've been holding off from making the purchase, because i didn't want to pay $200 for a shoe that doesn't fit perfect. looks like a lot of other folks are turned away from the higher price in general (and maybe they're not into the fabric upper).

if you could post some on-feet images, that'd be greatly appreciated, and definitely share your thoughts on whether or not you think they were worth 2 benjamins...or if you have any buyer's remorse, etc.

i don't believe I got the same Auckland Racers you are talking about. Mine are the Red/White/Blue from Undefeated.

Azrael is probably talking about the AR made by Missoni. They're the only $200 Cons I can think of.
