The Converse CTAS Pro in suede is a huge step forward for any die-hard Con’s skater whose been destroying their canvas shoes for years. 90% of you have probably had an original pair of Converse at some point in your life but the problem has always been the canvas. It rips fast. I tore through mine in just one day. Applying stickers, Band-Aids and anything else just doesn’t cut it.
Well now Converse has done something about it. The new CTAS Pro suede upper eliminates any problems the originals might have had. Ripping your new pair of Chucks right off the bat is a thing of the past. These shoes are durable.
Converse has its place in skateboard history. For decades, people have been skating their shoes, shredding through the canvas like it’s nothing. Hell, I’m sitting at my desk in a torn up pair of my own. They skate great and their image is iconic. Supremes’ Cherry recently made the CTAS Pro’s look like gold and Kenny Anderson has been skating Cons forever. Since their beginning in 1917, Cons have remained one of the most popular shoes of all time.
Suede isn’t the only bonus of the CTAS Pro upgrade. Features also include 100% skate-proof Lunarlon insoles, a gusseted tongue, skate-specific gum outsole and the thin, classic Converse collar. So no more excuses when it comes to jumping down 20 stairs.
Converse took their star player and transformed it into a top of the line skate shoe. They’ve added performance without losing any of its appearance or flexibility. All in all Converse has made a great shoe even better.
