Converse has collaborated with California-based skater Louie Lopez on a custom sneaker, inspired by Louie’s hometown of Hawthorne, California. The new Converse x Louie Lopez CTAS Pro High was designed with skate functionality in mind, while also providing an essential sneaker on and off the board.
This Converse Chuck Taylor All Star features innovative skate technology, including CONS traction rubber for increased grip and durability, as well as a Lunarlon sockliner for added comfort. With an upper made of premium suede, the sneaker exudes style with the addition of leather accents on both the heel stripe and classic Chuck Taylor All Star patch. A tribute to the California town where Louie grew up, the back of the tongue features an intricate map of Hawthorne, while the city seal is displayed in gold foil on the sockliner. The clean colors of the upper were also carefully selected by Louie, reflecting the shades of summertime in his home city.
The Converse x Louie Lopez CTAS Pro High is now available at select Converse retailers which includes Converse.com. Retail price is set at $80.
