Converse and NYC based Hopps Skateboards have teamed up to bring you a vintage style shoe that pays homage to Dr J, one of Hopps' owners childhood heros. Rubber backing on the upper give the shoe extra durability, and the CONS Traction Rubber formula is tough and grippy. Custom graphics on the supportive SMART FOAM insole and on the back of the shoe give you some added flair for when you're skating on that b-ball court.
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 Suede - Added durability thanks to the rubber backed suede, the rubber layer is applied to the back of the suede 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.
