Converse x Louie Lopez Pro
07 Jan 2019
To kick off the New Year, Converse introduces a new icon to the CONS lineup in celebration of 23-year old skater and CONS team rider, Louie Lopez.
As a skater who bridges the world between the streets and competition, Louie holds unique place in the sport. Touting multiple gold, silver and bronze medals in the Street League, Dew Tour and X Games, he boasts a loyal social following and has set his sights on conquering the 2020 Olympic Games and a continued series of street edits to be released by CONS.
Converse has crafted a signature shoe to honour Louie, through an expression that balances his personal style and optimizes his preferred skate specs.
Looking through the Converse archives, Louie was drawn to a tennis silhouette from the 70s featuring a butted seam upper construction that offered softer lines—a style element not seen in most of today’s skate shoes.
Constantly swapping between two silhouettes while on the board—the One Star CC Pro and the Breakpoint Pro—the Louie Lopez Pro effortlessly combines all three silhouettes to create a shoe that’s uniquely Louie: a poised classic, ready to withstand the test of time.
The Louie Lopez Pro Collection is available exclusively at Converse Emporium Melbourne, Lower Ground.
