Converse Cons Pro Leather Year of the Snake
The Converse Cons Pro Leather Year of the Snake sneaker is a carefully crafted take on the legendary silhouette utilizing a highly premium faux-python in a deep burgundy tone. This is balanced by lining the sneaker in ultra-soft sheepskin leather in tandem with Converse’s iconic canvas. Suggested Retail Price: $120.00
Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Chinese New Year Collection
Standing out of the traditional Chinese elements, this collection features abstract and modern patterns, in response to the oriental and traditional sense for the Chinese New Year season. Crafted snakeskin patterns are revealed under the blurring print on the uppers, with options of rock and roll black, seasonal Chinese red, and unique metallic colorings. Along with these features, each sneaker has additional details such as rivets, zippers, flocking and mixture of premium materials. Suggested Retail Price: $75.00 – $100.00
