ROKIT becomes the latest brand to re-interpret the Pro Leather - a silhouette which has been dubbed one of basketball’s most iconic shoes and a true classic within the Converse archive.
As two brands with DNA rooted in basketball and skate culture, the Pro Leather is the natural next chapter for the duo following the launch of this Spring’s Chuck 70 pack.
Acting as a love letter of sorts to Downtown Los Angeles’ Flower District whose streets, sounds and community are an endless source inspiration for the label, the interpretation was crafted to live on the streets, courts and ramps across LA. With a community that has inspired and helped them find their voice within subcultures across the city, the silhouette now serves as a vehicle for creative expression for the brand and its fans.
With the silhouette’s premium construction, high-quality materialization and monotone colour palettes, the team integrated subtle, nuanced elements from retro, on-and-off court designs - like its patent leather accents and covert details - to animate the sleek design.
Built on a semi-transparent midsole, the patent and natural leather blend through subtle stitching to create a white monotone upper, which hosts bold orange colour pops seen in ROKIT’s brand colour palette. The Pro Leather’s gold foil brand stamp typically stamped on the lateral to honour the original model, is personalized with a ROKIT insignia, and the Star Chevron logo is reworked as a nod to the ROKIT logo. To finish the look, the silhouette hosts a graphic sockliner and a 15mm wide lace.
This collection also features a hoodie and shorts.
