Dive into some Basketball history with this new re-mixed Converse Chuck Taylor sneaker.
Before watching the basketball comedy “Semi-Pro” starring Will Ferrell, I had no idea about the ABA. The American Basketball Association (ABA) was the birth of what we now know today as the National Basketball Association (NBA). This men’s professional basketball league made the transition from ABA to the NBA back in the late 1970s. Since then, the league has gradually grown into a global phenomenon with international appeal unlike any other.
Paying homage to Boston based branding, the sneaker is inspired by Dr. Funk's hoop squad of 1975. This reminiscent colorway is simple yet detrimental with its hand-selected hues. The legend of “Raygun” was established by previous Nike collaborations. By selecting to add some psychedelic flair to the Chuck 70, the best-selling sneaker of all-time has some groovy vibes. Overall, the canvas is bright White from the upper on down. A stark Black trim intricately borders the outline from throat to ankle region. Right below on the eggshell midsole has a set of team-colored stripes that are soft yet bold. Toe tips on the front have some far-out Yellow and Orange overlays that instantly grabs your attention. Last but not least, the footbeds have ‘Ray-Gun’ pressed with a shimmering finish.
