Update: Later on in the day Converse posted up two more team options and the Black/Gold colorway from the World Basketball Festival.
While we still haven't seen some of the teased colorways of the Converse SICKS from the world basketball festival...or a full run of team colors (that's another story)...Converse has finally released some exciting colorways of the Converse SICKS. The shoe that was originally designed to be Dwyane Wade's 6th signature shoe. Check out the fun colorways below and pick up a pair at Converse.com
It's been a rather frustrating few weeks and had the highs of convincing a middle school to buy 47 pairs of the Converse SICKS only to find out that we couldn't order 11 of the pairs because Converse didn't have the sizes. Now that team is wearing Adidas and I lost out on a major sell. So I took a few weeks off from the blog because, as you can imagine, I was pretty upset. I'm not over it yet, but what can I really do about it.
But you have to wonder, why would Nike want competition from Converse when they can sell their shoes at a higher profit margin? These are some of the same concerns I had 7 years ago when Nike bought Converse.
Anyway, at least we finally have some fun colorways of the SICKS to pick up.
