Converse officially launches the CONS KA-II today, the latest signature model for Converse Skateboarding Ambassador Kenny Anderson. The shoe features several performance upgrades, including a Nike Lunarlon sockliner, memory foam lining and a gusseted tongue for a custom fit.

"The KA-II skates with a full board-feel, has the support and durability of a cup sole, and I really like the way the sneaker looks and feels on my feet,” said Anderson. “Even when I’m riding my older, worn-in board, the traction on the sole makes the board feel like it’s brand new.”

The KA-II, shown below in classic black, grey and blue options, is available now online at converse.com/skateboarding.
