Did you know that in 1983 the Fastbreak was designed for basketball players to jump high and fly and considered to be performance innovation?
Converse has now brought back the Fastbreak with a few new style takes making it the perfect street style sneaker for summer!
The Fastbreak broke ground on its 1983 introduction, when it ushered in a new sense of performance innovation. It was designed to be lightweight and breathable featuring a foam-backed nylon and leather upper to shed unnecessary weight.
The new Fastbreak is a leather take on the classic style yet still retains the classic paneling and iconic appearance. The collection doesn’t sacrifice comfort either, a shock absorbent sole with flexibility and a pivot point make this style ideal for everyday wear. From a legendary court legacy to a street-level lifestyle, they have retained that authenticity in a leather reinterpretation of a shoe that helped make history.
The Fastbreak collection is available in Casino Red, Candy Grape and Green and launches in select Footlocker stores and Converse.ca for $110.00 CAD.
