The Converse Fastbreak was the elite basketball shoe on the market... in 1983, but this model has been reinvented to meet the needs of every skater in today's world. With features like CX Foam insoles for impact absorption, and rubber-backed nylon construction to increase durability, this retro shoe has come back with a bang and is ready to take on all of your skating needs.
- Rubber Backing
- Cons Traction Rubber
- CX Foam Sockliner
Cupsole - Durable and shock-absorbing to provide the best impact protection against hard landings. Cupsoles generally last longer than a vulcanized sole but don't provide as much flexibility and board feel right out of the box.
Rubber Backing - Added durability thanks to the rubber backed upper material, the rubber layer is applied to the back of the outer material to enhance durability and extend the life of the upper, these shoes are tough.
Cons Traction Rubber - Converse maintains their iconic outsole and has updated their classic Converse vulcanized rubber compound to increase board traction for today's skateboarder and offers 70% increased griptape traction.
CX Foam Sockliner - This highly absorbent CX foam made from molded polyurethane (PU) provides comfort and cushioning that will keep its shape and never pack-out giving you lasting protection.
That being said I like the way they look...but once my ankle heals up (it's been 5 weeks I'm almost healed) I'm going back to skating in Jack Purcell mid's or ctas hi's.
