I can't help but think of shark fins when I look at these. I know hardly anything about them except they're named the Converse Halftime. Also it would appear from the Logo and overall design that these gems were released in the mid 90's.
If you know anything more about these shoes please contact me and let me know. Well enjoy the bowl season. I'll be out of town for the Music City Bowl for Monday's post, so I might try to post before I leave. Thanks for stopping by and keep returning for the Converse Blog.

I am not sure that these will be the All Star colorway, it is only a guess at this point. I was also able to find a picture of what appears to be a China Exclusive colorway. Well that's all for today, enjoy returning gifts and getting great deals for next year. Thanks for stopping by here at the Converse Blog.

I got these pictures from the Converse message board hosted by Converse China. As you will see the Chucks are black/white in colorway. They feature two of Rodman's more famous tattoos on both sides. And just like Chucks should be, they're made in the U.S.A.
I am off to go do some semi-last minute Christmas shopping as I am sure most of you will be doing too. Be safe out there, it's a mad house, well I am only guessing. Anyway thanks for checking out the Converse Blog and please return often!

The second is titled "Grateful" and has a setting of a soap opera that makes Passions look like good programing. Anyway, "Grateful" is also a silent Commercial. They both suggest some controversial issues that are worth discussing. There is no doubt that commercials like these are risky, which I am pretty sure is a good thing for Converse. Love them or hate them, you have to give it to them for trying something different. Leave some feedback on them below and check out all the ads at http://www.converse.com/disruption/
Thanks for coming to the Converse Blog, and tell all the strangers you meet today about the site! Thanks

My guess is that these are just a sample pair. However it would have been interesting to see what would have happened. Either way I hope you enjoyed something a little different today. Thanks for checking out the site, and come back often.

Converse All Star Elevate
This shoe came out either 2000 or 2001, well at least I am pretty sure. Sometimes it all runs together. However, these shoes did feature Helium which puts them in the 1999-2002 span. I must admit I passed on these, and I am not really sure why. I just remember thinking that if this was the direction Converse was going with Helium, I was excited for the future.
These shoes had some pretty exciting features for a Converse shoe at the time of release. It has a simple design, which based on the He:01 and He:02 was a different approach. They also have visible Helium unit on the heel and outsole. Sadly I must point out that the Elevate also featured brand new midsole and outsole patterns, something at appeared to be rare for Converse at the time. You will also see the Star in Oval logo used on the early models for the Helium shoes.
I do apologize for the late posting today, and lack of pictures. So if any of you out there had these shoes, or better yet worked on these shoes contact me and we'll converse about them. Anywho, I was going to announce a goal for the end of the year, but hits have been coming in so much recently I might have to rethink the goal. Regardless, thanks for stopping by and please leave comments and suggestions for making the Converse Blog better.

As the name suggest today's Weapon is a Magic Johnson Player Exclusive edition. I found these on an auction website, but I can't remember the address, so please excuse my lack of sourcing today.

The next shoe is named, yep you guessed it the B-10. I don't know what these were designed for, but I'd sure like the have a pair myself. Anyway, here are the pics of the B-10.

So what does that have to do with anything I am going to post up today? That's a pretty good to a great question to ask. Today's flashback, the Startech, is a basketball shoe from the 80's it came in low, 3/4, and high top. I've got a few other pictures, but I am going exclusively with the white/orange 3/4 top colorway to give a little added support for Smokey and the rest of the Vols.
Okay so this is a really crappy picture, for one that big logo is in the center of it, which I am too cheap to buy so, that you www.gettyimages.com. Second because when it shrinks down it's hard to make out the shoe that this Lady Vol is wearing, but it is in fact the 3/4 Converse Startech pictured below. So there is the proof that the Vols, did wear these shoes. So take that naysayers.
