Converse Gives the Fastbreak Mid Zip a Utilitarian Update

The iconic sneaker and lifestyle brand, Converse, has relaunched the classic Fastbreak Mid Zip Sneaker this month. Originally released in 1983 as a high-performance basketball shoe, the sneaker returns with weatherized upgrades in three colorways: white, black, and antique brown. Now featuring waterproof and insulating materials, this influential ’80s shoe provides functional style in time for the winter.
