Louie Lopez's first pro model shoe is inspired by retro tennis shoes giving it a low profile, but packed with skateboarding functionality. The durable upper is backed with rubber to extend the life of the shoe past just the upper material. The OrthoLite insole with Nike Zoom Air technology provides excellent impact absorption and heel bruise protection. A vulcanized construction with the original CONS traction rubber gives you the responsiveness and boardfeel that you love about Converse shoes. Ya' did good Louie!

Vulcanized - “Vulc” shoes are light, flexible and break in quickly. These don't provide as much foot protection as cupsoles, but they are preferred if you’re looking for good board feel in a shoe with less weight and bulk.
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 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.
I usually run a 9.0 in CTAS and 9.5 in Jack Purcell or others. While on the CTAS sole these fit more true to size (if 9.5 get a 9.5.)
Only downside is insole and overall cushioning. Cons really gotta get this figured out.
