Saks for Converse handmade limited edition Dr. J Pro Leather shoe. This is your chance to own a pair of very super limited edition trainers with only 24 pairs ever made worldwide.
This is the 2011 converse collaboration for which designer Ryusaku Hiruma, founder of sak, lent his gorgeous, handmade craftsmanship to one of the most significant shoes in Converse and basketball history.
This shoe is not to be confused with the jack Purcell x sak converse all star collection for which 64 pairs in each style where made and released worldwide.

This is the conceptual and beautiful version of the Converse Dr. J Pro Leather shoe, the collaboration features rich, supple Italian leather, hand-stitched from the upper and rand to insole. Hiruma’s attention to detail is extraordinary including leather soles that echo finely made dress shoes, yet with ink-printed logos and trademark Pro Leather footprint detail that give them a playful, familiar feeling. Only 24 pairs were produced and this is 1 of them.

They retailed for £400 gbp and around $600-$800 usd. They were only available in one shop in the uk. This pair is a mens uk 9, us 10, Eur 42.5 and in cm is 27.5. These shoes come in a box that once opened has the shoes wrapped in a delivery style wrapping paper just like they did in the 1960's/70's. The wrapping paper has a stamped serial number on it and a postage stamp as decor along with a few other ink stamps. The shoes come with spare laces that are cotton and have a very retro vintage look to them which adds to the ageing of these shoes. The leather is quality like none other and I have read on the net that over time these shoes once worn in will start to look like the originals from back in the 70's due to the materials used to make them and the way they was constructed. Which is great if you like that real stylish retro vintage look.

Now for those who don't know The Pro Leather shoe changed the basketball sneaker forever. It was worn by Dr J who ushered in the modern era of the game and, back-in the-day, the man and the shoe represented effortless style with remarkable technical skill. In that spirit, we are excited to debut this shoe which fuses sak’s unparalleled skills as a craftsman and the legendary Pro Leather shoe to create a stylish work of art,” says Ian Ginoza, Converse Director of First String and Special Projects.

The sak sneaker features rich, supple, natural brown Italian leather, hand-stitched from upper and around to insoles including leather soles with ink-printed logos and trademark Pro Leather details.

These are the rolls Royce of converse!

They are brand new and have never been worn. The shoes do have some pressure marks on the lower mid centre part of the sole which you can see in my pictures. This probably was done due to people trying on the shoes in the shop.

The shoe size yet again i will state are a uk 9, us 10, Eur 42.5 and 27.5 in cm. Please check your size properly!

They come with spare cotton vintage laces which can be used if you don't like the leather one's on them in my pictures.

You can do your own research on the net about these shoes. Just search the name converse sak dr j pro which will back up all I have said and will also give you more knowledge and insight into what these are and how rare and super limited they are. Please be reminded again these are rare, hard to find and very limited so limited they are probably the only pair on eBay worldwide!

So if you appreciate a truly unique and rare trainer like this and are serious about obtaining them please make me a very sensible offer. Any low offers will be rejected or ignored as these trainers cost £400 retail so keep dreaming if you think you are gonna get such unique craftsmanship for any less than that.

Any questions please don't hesitate to contact me.

Thanks
