Trivia fact: In 1949, virtually every player in the NBA wore the brand’s iconic Chuck Taylor All Star sneaker.
So why not bring back this iconic moment in NBA fashion history with premium sneaks with your fave teams on them… Such as the Warriors.
Honoring our home town team with a custom pair of kicks, the newly-minted legends in the NBA, the Golden State Warriors turned the Bay into basketball’s twenty-first century epicenter. The five-time championship winners have been creating historic moments in recent times for their competitive spirit and ability to overcome unbelievable odds. The Converse x NBA Golden State Warriors sneaker honors the Bay Area with an embroidered landscape of the Bay Bridge on the upper.
In case you needed a quick refresher about why the Warriors have gotten this esteem honor: Wilt Chamberlain and Steph Curry have both been named the NBA’s Most Valuable Player while playing for the Warriors, for a total of three MVP awards. 18 Hall of Famers have played for the Warriors, while four have coached the team. Golden State holds the NBA records for best regular season with 73–9, best postseason with 16–1 (.941 winning percentage) and most wins in a season (regular season and postseason combined) with 88. Seems pretty clear, no?
To complete your newly bought shoes, Converse and the Warriors are also launching a line of Converse NBA Apparel that will tie together the full street-wear uniform. Featuring exclusive Converse NBA branding, the collection includes a winterwool bomber jacket with primaloft fill, a hooded coaches jacket and Converse Essentials—a hoodie, crewneck, long-sleeve tee and jogger. The apparel will range between $50—$250.
Gang, what are you waiting for? Be like Riley and let the world know who you love in the NBA.
