Converse One Star Pro Mid Shoes in Obsidian, Hyper Pink and Black. Arriving as the Shanghai counterpart from the brand’s ‘Heart of the City’ collection, inspired by basketball, street-culture and nightlight, this performance-focused design pairs better boardfeel with structured longevity to deliver exemplary quality from first wear. Styled with rubber-backed suede uppers crafted to resemble cracked snakeskin, these embossed mid-top sneakers feature the brand’s iconic CONS traction rubber outsole styled in a striking shade of hyper-pink, a moulded CX foam sockliner and over-spilt foxings for improved abrasion resistance. The multi-layered auxetic toe bumper keeps unwanted scuffs and scrapes at bay, whilst the recessed 8-eyelet lacing system secures the flat poly-cotton laces across the debossed ‘CONS’ tongue with ease. Side-wall perforations are matched with the brand’s iconic cut-through ‘One Star’ emblem, with the rubberised heel scabs celebrating heritage and contemporary desire through their certified aesthetic. Neon-pink custom insoles pay tribute to its Shanghai muse, whilst the split-profile Hanzi ‘Converse’ branding helps seal the design with an added layer of referential depth well-suited to the collection’s quirky aesthetic.
A midnight-blue high-collared profile that taps into contemporary ‘after-dark’ trends and the collection’s endless ode to nightlife, this mid-cut One Star Pro is inspired by cross-cultural ties and modernised cityscape necessity. A silhouette re-issued in the ‘90s after its initial fruition in the ‘70s, the iconic One Star remains one of Converse’s most popular silhouettes to date.
