Converse CONS Louie Lopez Anniversary Pack

A three year celebration of team rider Louie Lopez’s signature skate shoe with Converse. Originally launched in 2019, the Converse Louie Lopez Pro Ox returns in an all-new colourway alongside a Converse Louie Lopez Pro Mid for this belated 3rd Anniversary Pack. Part of the Converse CONS team since 2014, Lopez continues to be known for his endless creativity and his feature in edits including ‘Lola’, ‘Purple’ and Fucking Awesome’s ‘Days of Grace’.

Turning pro for Flip Skateboards in 2013 at the age of 18, Lopez is renowned for being one of the best young skaters to date. Joining Converse CONS in 2014, Lopez’s first custom skate shoe with the skate subdivision launched in 2017 in the form of the Converse CTAS Pro Hi, a hometown referencing design that shares many of the same inspirations as his more recent Pro Ox from the brand’s cityscape inspired ‘Heart of the City’ pack. Backed by sponsorships with brands including Spitfire and Independent, Lopez is also part of Jason Dill and Anthony Van Engelen’s Fucking Awesome, appearing in edits such as his own ‘Days of Grace’ feature and 2019’s ‘Industrial Light & Magic’ edit alongside the likes of Kevin Bradley, Diego Todd, Andrew Allen and Sean Pablo.

Following on from last year’s anniversary pack that featured both a black and white release, the Converse Louie Lopez Pro Ox remains a firm favourite thanks to its archive inspired aesthetic and its reference to both classic athletic and tennis silhouettes. Returning in a vintage style colourway of coffee nut, black and gum brown, this latest release is styled with rubber backed nubuck uppers and classic gold foil sidewall branding. The fully vulcanised outsole features CONS traction rubber, heightened foxings and auxetic forefoot overlays, whilst the OrthoLite sockliner is combined with a Nike Zoom Air heel unit for additional cushioning and impact absorption. Intricate perforations detail the embroidered Chevron Star midfoot and the lightly padded ‘CONS’ tongue, with the recessed six eyelet lacing system securing it across the arch of the foot. Finished with tonal lined interiors, custom ‘L. Lopez’ printed insoles and with gold foil ‘CONS’ branding printed across each heel.

Released two years after the Pro Ox in 2021, the Converse Louie Lopez Pro Mid ultimately captures the evolution of the low through its extended cut and its combination of both stability and style. The second part of this third-year anniversary pack, this latest colourway remains in keeping with the theme with its colour block black construction and brushed brown CONS outsole. Featuring a slightly taller mid-style collar, rubber backed nubuck uppers and classic Chevron Star embroidery across each midfoot. Commemorative ‘L.Lopez’ details are displayed across the side walls and the insoles, with a cushioned CX foam sockliner providing additional support. The embossed ‘CONS’ tongue is secured across the arch of the foot through a recessed seven eyelet lacing system, whilst lightly padded perforated collars and a traditional vulcanised outsole finish the design.
