Just because the U.S.Olympic Basketball Team will wear Converse basketball shoes, should you?
Lightning-fast breaks… split-second stops… pivots so swift, you’ll miss them if you blink… That’s Olympic basketball. Fierce and fast, because every team is out to beat the world.
It’s probably the world’s most demanding sport on sneakers, too.
Tough on sneaker insides (because they have to stay comfortable and non-chafing). And brutal on sneaker soles (because the treads have to give action-traction in every direction). Which is why the U.S. basketball team will take the court in Converse basketball shoes. As a matter of fact, nine U.S. Olympic teams will wear Converse athletic or casual footwear at the Olympics. So it stands to reason: Converse must be the greatest. (Why else would so many U.S. teams wear Converse footwear at the world’s most demanding competition – the Olympics!)
