Price: $180 or $160

If you’re looking for the ultimate Winter Soldier boot, then look no further. Converse joined forces with Tokyo-based fashion label Ambush to bring this futuristic utilitarian concept to life. For Ambush founder Yoon Ahn’s first collaboration with Converse, he uses two iconic models: the Converse Chuck 70 and the Pro Leather. Both silhouettes stay true to their original form, but receive an aggressive military makeover with a rubberized upper, matte detailing, a gusseted tongue for stability and matching laces for a monochromatic palette.

Completely winterized, Ahn is one of the first designers to transfer the classic Converse Pro Leather Basketball. Featuring Ambush branding and an elevated heel, both models are ready for the winter season ahead.

The Air Jordan X—that honors the NBA team the Seattle Sonics—has been reimagined. Known as one of the members of the City Series, this silhouette features the iconic green and gold of the Pacific Northwest, uniquely inspired by Seattle’s rich hoop history.

It has been three years since Jordan Brand revamped the “City Series,” so this weekend’s drop is big for many who missed out on this colorway.
