To celebrate this year’s All-Star Weekend location of Chicago, Converse is releasing an All Star Pack, available to shop in the Windy City. The pack includes all-white versions of the Pro Leather, Chuck 70 and All Star Pro BB sneakers, with the chance for customers to customize their pairs in select stores.

Also among the offerings is the All Star Pro BB Pack, which throws it back to the 1988 All-Star Game jersey. The silhouette comes in a white, blue and red colorway that will be available to shop exclusively at All-Star Weekend. A black-and-white version of the silhouette is also offered.

Finally, Converse is releasing several colorways of the Pro Leather OG, which initially dropped in the ’70s. The shoes have a white leather upper with star chevron branding; the star and chevron accents come in colors inspired by the Pro Leather’s initial launch.
