Honoring the legend of Julius “Dr. J” Erving and the shoe he made history in, Converse recreates the classic silhouette in a premium crafted version and announces the First String Standards Dr. J Pro Leather. Only 168 of the white/navy version will be available, beginning Friday, August 5.
“The original shoe launched in 1976, the Pro Leather shoe is not only the shoe that Dr. J made famous, it’s the shoe that ushered in the modern era of basketball footwear. Kicking off the collection, Converse will unveil the classic white and navy color way. Crafted with rich leathers and premium construction, like early versions, the shoe comes in clean, white uppers contrasted with a navy stitched Star Chevron logo.”
