With Christmas right around the corner, Converse is decking out its latest All Star Pro BB with a Grinch-inspired "Nocturnal" colorway that arrives next week.

Designed by Eric Avar, the performance basketball model dons a bright green QuadFit mesh upper with a matching Nike React midsole for its cushioning. A black Chevron logo is found on the lateral side while the All Star branding is stamped on the medial side and finished off with red laces. The "Grinch" colorway was popularized on the Nike Zoom Kobe 6—the sixth model from Kobe Bryant's Nike signature basketball line that was also designed by Avar back in 2010 for Christmas.

The upcoming "Nocturnal" Converse All Star Pro BB is releasing first at select retailers in China on Dec. 12 followed by a stateside launch on Dec. 15 on Converse.com and at select Converse stores.
