Twisted Classics from Converse

The undisputed leaders in West Coast classic fashion culture have re-upped a selection of their most iconic sneakers –  some of which have been around for over a decade!

The Twisted Classics collection from Converse takes a number of their silhouettes – old and new – and twists them to give them a fresh new look.

The same Chuck, but different

The OG Chuck Taylor canvas sneak first dropped back in 1917, before it was redesigned in ’22. The design has remained largely unchanged since, making it such an icon. If it ain’t broke etc.

Included in Converse’s Twisted Classics drop is the Twisted Plates pack, which takes the legendary Chuck Taylor All Star and places it on a platform sole for a bold look that takes the sneak game to new heights.

The Twisted Varsity pack features the Parchment Ox sneaker and a black hi-top with a bold red patch for a street-ready finish.

Pro Ball, Pro Leather

If it’s a hardwood inspired look that you’re after, then the Pro Leather kicks are your bag.

The Pro Leather sneaker was Converse’s re-entry onto the b-ball court in the ’80s and ’90s after the original canvas Chuck Taylor trainer faded out of the game and into street culture. In 2019, Converse relaunched the Pro Leather out into the world as a stitch-for-stitch homage to the beloved original. Coming in a fresh white colourway with a range of different coloured overlays, this a retro court trainer that’s finding a new home on the streets.
