Part of the Nike Basketball’s “Art Of A Champion” Collection, today we bring you official images of the Converse Pro Leather inspired by the one and only Julius Erving.
Before joining the NBA, Dr. J’s mastery of the physical world was virtually unknown, except to those from the courts of Harlem. That all changed with one smooth move in Game 4 of the 1980 Finals. Driving to the baseline halfway through the 4th quarter, he raised the ball high with one hand, teasing the Lakers defense before bringing it back under the hoop and scooping it off the glass. While Dr. J and the Sixers didn’t go on to win the series, his move in the All- Star’s brought the fabled flair and flash of Harlem basketball to the NBA. This Converse Pro Leather features a white leather upper with red detailing on the branding, heel, and inner liner for a simple and classic look. Gold accents on the lace dubraes, the graphics on the insoles, and the branding on the heel complete the look.
Be on the lookout for the Converse Pro Leather The Scoop to release on April 19th for a price tag of $100.
