Converse skateboarding (CONS) will be releasing a new colorway (Cordovan) of the KA-II model (11/15/2013), featuring a premium leather rarely seen or used with the skate line.
The letter written by Kenny details the inspiration for the colorway as he has an affinity for restoring vintage automobiles and their interiors, along with converting the cars to run on corn oil:
It should be noted that the "Cordovan" is not in reference to the materials used, but rather the colorway itself.
Our sources confirmed there are only 280 pairs total within North America, and 400 pairs total worldwide.
The model retails for $90 and should be arriving at your local CONS dealer soon.
