Carlos Arroyo PE Star Player EVO from World Basketball Festival

By now you should have a pretty good idea of the Converse Star Player EVO as it has been featured on this site and many other sneaker blogs.  What you might not have seen yet is the Player Exclusive version that Carlos Arroyo wore during the World Basketball Festival.  I hope to see plenty of players in the NBA this season rocking their own player exclusives too.  I also think these will look pretty good in Miami Heat colors.  Anyway, enjoy

Converse One Star Running introduce new Converse Sense Technology.

 Converse has finally returned to the performance running category, albeit it's through their One Star brand exclusively sold at Target and Amazon.  Below are the two men colorways in white/navy/yellow and the black/white/silver.  There is also a womens colorway in sliver/blue.

Also in the shoe is Converse's new cushioning technology named "Converse Sense."  I don't know much about it other then it appears to be a foam based system.  I hope to  have more information soon.
