In 1891, a gym teacher in Springfield, Massachusetts placed a peach basket on a 10-foot pool. The sport of basketball was born. Almost 130 years later, Converse and Concepts have teamed up to pay tribute to those humble beginnings with the peach-inspired Southern Flame Chuck 70 and All Star BB Evo. This collaboration blends the classic basketball heritage of Converse with the modern storytelling prowess of Concepts. The result is a bold tribute to basketball history that’s styled for the streets of today.
The Chuck 70 echoes the collection’s inspiration with a vivid peach print on platinum suede. Silver eyelets, crisp red trim and a custom Concepts license plate complete the collaborative look. And as opposite to the Chuck 70, The All Star BB Evo gets a vibrant “green peach” treatment to match its high-performance stance. The history of the sport meets the future of the game.
The Converse x Concepts Southern Flame collection will release on January 28, 2021.
