Converse One Star CC "Sage Elsesser"
As quoted from nike news,
Pro skateboarder Sage Elsesser was reminded of the One Star's legacy while shopping in Tokyo’s Harajuku district. “Every few months I go to Tokyo and find myself looking through everything in the vintage stores,” says Elsesser. “Inside one of the shops, I saw the Converse One Star Court Classic behind a glass case."
|Drawn to the shoe by its versatility, yellow-hued soles and wear over time, 19-year-old Elsesser decided that his second collaboration with Converse would be a modern take on the One Star CC in navy and white colorways. “I wanted to keep the shoe’s vintage aesthetic,” says Elsesser. “I like the way the One Star looks on my feet, plus navy blue and white are good colors that can be worn easily.”|

Additionally, he added graphics, a gold rose on the tongue and handprints on the insole, referencing some of Elsesser’s favorite album covers."
In keeping with the re-mastered CONS aesthetic, the shoe has durable, premium suede, a cushioned Nike Lunarlon insole and lightweight rubber for increased grip and traction.
