Video: Slam City Skates x Converse Skateboarding

This Fall London’s Slam City Skates has teamed up with Converse Skateboarding for collaborative editions of the CTS Mid and CTS Ox.

Converse announces the launch of its collaboration with England’s most famous skate store, Slam City Skates. Taking inspiration from the way skate icons such as Jason Jessee wore the brand in the late ’80s and early ’90s, Converse Skateboarding and Slam City Skates have teamed up to produce two new versions of the CTS Mid and CTS Ox. Both models feature premium black suede uppers with logo-de-bossed grey heel strips and red accents. Branding is typically subtle on the traditionally illustrated Slam City tongue tabs. There are some more skate-friendly additions with the reintroduction of the classic white Chuck Taylor toe guard and padded collar for extra support and comfort.

To celebrate the launch and illustrate the lo-fi aesthetic that inspired the sneakers, Converse Skateboarding and Slam City Skates have also worked with film maker Lev Tanju and photographer Sam Ashley to create original content that captures riders Charlie Young and Rory Milanes in action.

The Converse Skateboarding x Slam City Skates CTS Mid and Ox are available from Monday 22nd October 2012slamcity.com/shoes/converse.html.
