Today, CONS announced the launch of the new Converse CONS KA3, the third signature sneaker with longtime Converse Skate Ambassador Kenny Anderson.
The Converse CONS KA3 stays true to the CONS skateboarding heritage with a classic skateboarding silhouette, and also integrates functional features like CONS traction rubber for optimal board grip, a drop-in Lunarlon sockliner for cushioning, and a vulcanized last for superior board feel. The perforated memory foam collar forms to the foot and provides breathability while the gusseted tongue offers stability and comfort.
The Converse CONS KA3 sneaker will be available for purchase on Friday, January 15 with a rich premium leather silhouette for a suggested retail price $80 USD, as well as other iterations in leather, canvas and suede in six different colors including Black, White, Red, Vision Blue, Dolphin and Black for a suggested retail price of $70 USD. Both models will be available at Converse, Converse.com and skate specialty retailers nationwide.

Long-time Green Label collaborator Kevin Lyons releases his latest GLX collection, including a deck, t-shirt, hat and wallet done in conjunction with Girl skateboards.
