In case you didn't know Converse is a Nike subsidiary...so don't think that they were trying to jack the technology. HA. Converse is trying to bring back their performance lineup this year with somewhat of a twist. They have reached out to the better half and will soon release a select lineup of basketball shoes with the flywire technology embedded on them. Hard to tell at this point what the actual shoes will look like or even if the performance will match what's currently out on the market now. If Nike has their hand in it there is a possibility. Stick with us as more details develop around what all this will intel. For now we here at SSD are reserving our judgement until we can get more information out on these!
