Converse One Star Country Pride

Converse One Star Country Pride: Pick the colours that speak to you and wear them proudly.

Johannesburg, 14 June 2018 – Inspired by countries from all around the world, the One Star Canvas Country Pride collection is all about coming together in celebration – just in time for a much-anticipated world tournament.

Each unique sneaker features a lightweight canvas upper with suede details, an EVA foam insole for cushioning, and an embroidered Converse One Star logo.

Since its groundbreaking debut in 1974, there has been no branch of modern style that hasn’t been informed by the One Star. Originally built for the basketball court, its boldness was later adopted and owned by the independents.

Constantly reimagined by those on the fringes, it remains unstoppable. Some shoes get lost in history. One Star bends history towards it.

The Converse One Star Country Pride collection retails at R999.00 and is available from Converse stores, Superbalist, X-Trend and Jack Lemkus. Pick the colours that speak to you and wear them proudly.
