Converse - Break Point Ox Shoes - Mason / White
Fresh from the Converse Spring 15 range.
The Break Point Ox Shoe has been designed by Converse as an homage to the brands legacy but with current comfort.
This version comes in a classic black suede, contrasted with the white star and chevron symbolising forward motion. The shoe sits on a vulc sole that, with incorporated cushioning gives the shock absorption and wear of a cupsole. The collar and heel tab again are in nice contrasting white leather. All this is done while retaining a clean low profile shoe with out bulk.
Part of Converse' CONS Skateboarding range, featuring classically styled models subtly updated with modern tech. Setting out to make them more comfortable, durable and meeting modern demands.
• Black suede upper.
• Shock absorbing inner sole.
• Lightly padded tongue for hold and fit.
• Leight weight and grippy Cons traction.
• Contrasting white leather emblem and collar.
• Finished with a woven tongue label.
We don’t use the term “Star Player” to call out the best member of a team. Rather, it’s to celebrate the street guerrillas who skate under the CONS zeitgeist; be authentic, fearless and unadulterated.
The Converse Cons Star Player Pro in black suede leather has CONS traction rubber, a molded Lunarlon sock liner and perforated memory foam padding for added comfort, a thicker, gusseted tongue for front-foot strength, and mesh underlay vents on both sides to keep your dogs breathing cool. Hit it hard.
Converse are the all-american shoe brand that have maintained stamina through-out there existence, formed in 1908, Converse have been present in skateboarding every since influential skateboarder Matt Hensley don the chuck Taylor and influencing an entire generation of young skateboarders with his unique style and approach. More recently they have enjoyed increased popularity in skateboarding with Bill Strobecks production Cherry on behalf of Supreme which heavily featured modern styled skateboarders repping the Cons insignia creating a huge wave of (indirect) marketing for the company. Converse have created a lot of noise around the brand with localised campaigns like the 'Cons Project' which has seen physical skateboard installations housed in many cities around the world including in Peckham in London incorporating art, music and social media workshops which Parlour skate Store were lucky enough to be construct a feature for which can be seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aUqsEzSF-Io
