Converse Reveals Next Basketball Lineup

Converse has officially revealed their fall footwear lineup that includes the Mission VLTG V and ERX 260, in both MID and OX versions, paying respect to Converse’s basketball heritage in new ways.

Several elements of the decade’s sportswear history is reflected — including an early penchant for tracksuits to a later embrace of bold geometries — and re-crafted.

Mission VLTG V

Originally released in 1995, the Converse Voltage made an immediate statement on collegiate and NBA courts through its dynamic “bolt-chevron” upper pattern. That it was worn by some of the era’s most potent guards led to its mystic and made the shoe a cult favorite (lock-up with school uniform styles helped too).

For 2019, the Voltage is brought back from the archives for the first time, its spirit channeled through the new, women’s-only Mission VLTG V. This vision of the shoe reinterprets the ’95 silhouette with an exaggerated heel arch, lightweight SmartFoam cushioning and street-ready herringbone outsole.

ERX 260 MID

The color blocking of the ERX 260 MID draws from a series of Converse tracksuits sold in 1990 under the “CONS Collection” label. Along with an embossed tongue, these blocked color palettes celebrate the ERX’s over-the-top verve. The shoe is completed by OrthoLite insole cushioning and an EVA heel.

ERX 260 OX

Notable for its brash high and mid models, the ERX gets a low-cut, off-court refresh in 2019. It retains archival design cues, including embossed tongue details, and is given an OrthoLite insole with EVA heel for added comfort.

Check out the entire lineup below, and expect all three models to release this August 2019 at select retailers and Converse.com.
