KA-ONE VULC

Company
Converse

Product Description
Kenny Anderson signature vulcanized sneaker, the KA-ONE is inspired by the Converse classic trainer from 1976. It is one of the first sneakers to don the star chevron logo mark.
Includes: Ortholite sockliner, all star traction rubber, abrasion resistant suede & perforated foam package.

Pros:
• EXTREMELY COMFORTABLE
• Good board feel
• Great flick
• The blue sole is rad

Cons:
• Sizing runs a bit big. I’d buy a half size smaller than what you normally wear.
• Lace guard area wore out and had to shoe goo. After that they lasted great.

Additional Notes:
• Seriously one of the comfiest pairs of shoes I’ve ever had.
• Kenny Rules!

Overall
This makes the third pair of Kenny Anderson pro-model shoes I’ve had. I had the first Converse pro-model he had back in the day, then his Adios and so I thought I’d give these a try, especially since they came out in a vulcanized version. What I noticed most about these shoes is their comfort, which is incredible. They’re a classy, simple design harkening to the timeless Cons designs of years past with Kenny’s updated, stylish take. The shoes skate great and lasted well aside from some minor stitching issues near the laces. Kenny knows what he’s doing when it comes to shoe design and this is no exception. Definitely recommended.
