Originally released in 1993, the Converse Aero Jam was the signature sneaker for Larry Johnson, which was made famous in the classic “Grandmama” commercials.
Last retroed in 2014, the OG colorway is returning with a bit of a twist. Dressed in a mix of White, Black, Teal and Purple. Some of the key features to the original included a detachable lace cover and REACT juice cushioning.
On this retro model, you’ll notice the signature grade fade has been replaced with a paint splatter, while the heel comes in a slightly different build completed with EnergyWave tech in the forefoot.
Currently available at Converse Japan, you can expect a possible stateside release to come in the near future. Stay tuned for updates.
UPDATE: This is a Converse Japan exclusive and only available in that market. Don’t expect a stateside release to take place anytime soon.
