The Barcelona Pro takes after classic Converse tennis shoes and introduces skate functionality. The lightweight upper is backed with rubber to give the shoe extra longevity, and the toe cap provides a natural feeling flick and durability. The cupsole construction in combination with the dual-density Ortholite® insole and Zoom cushioning, supports your feet and helps prevent heel bruises. The CONS traction rubber outsole gives you plenty of grip on all surfaces whether it be grass, clay, concrete, or the board.
Cupsole - Cupsoles are durable, well-cushioned and provide the best impact protection against hard landings. The sole consists of a single rubber layer, reinforced with glue then stitched to the upper. Cupsoles generally last longer than vulcanized soles, but don't provide as much flexibility and board feel right out of the box.
Rubber Backed Canvas - Added durability thanks to the rubber backed canvas, the rubber layer is applied to the back of the canvas to enhance durability and extend the life of the upper, these shoes are tough.
Cons Traction Rubber - Converse maintains their iconic blue outsole and has updated their classic Converse vulcanized rubber compound to increase board traction for today's skateboarder and offers 70% increased griptape traction.
Molded OrthoLite Sockliner - Specially developed Converse double density molded OrthoLite sockliner features heel and forefoot pads in high impact areas for energy dispersion.
OrthoLite foam fights against fungus, bacteria and odor through a patented environmentally friendly biocide
High level of breathability and moisture wicking, OrthoLite's open cell polyurethane foam is 95-100% breathable allowing air to circulate through the sockliner.
Zoom Air Bag Heel - Nike Zoom technology combines pressurized air with internal fibers to deliver highly responsive cushioning that springs back fast for maximum impact protection.
