Almost half a decade since Alexis Sablone, the trailblazing skater, joined the Converse family, the brand is releasing her signature skate shoe, the AS-1 Pro, in two fresh new colorways. Following its prestigious debut at the Guggenheim in May, the AS-1 Pro, touted as Converse's most innovative skate model to date, continues to disrupt the sneaker world.
This time, the silhouette embraces universal and timeless shades, dressing its premium leather upper in crisp "White" and deep "Obsidian". The contrast in accents, highlighted in the colorway of their counterparts, adds a dynamic edge to each sneaker.
What unifies these two renditions is their shared gum-soled tooling, a nostalgic nod to skateboarding's roots, and a functional design element providing skaters the grip and durability they need. The gum soles against the stark "White" and dark "Obsidian" uppers lend a striking aesthetic balance, making these pairs as visually pleasing as they are performance-ready.
Take a look at the official images of the two colorways below, and look for these to be available now on Converse.com for $80 a pop.
