Converse All Star Pro BB Review

Pros:
One of the lightest shoes on the market
Cons:
Requires a lot of wiping on dusty courts

Performance of the Converse All Star Pro BB:

The Converse All Star Pro BB is the first performance basketball shoe from Converse in a long time, so how does it perform? The traction is divisive, some really liked it on clean courts, others complain about inconsistency, especially on dustier courts. The React insole is rather firm and works best for players who prefer responsiveness and court feel over impact protection. The upper materials are similar to the Kobe AD NXT 360 and are very minimal, thin and breathable but don't provide a ton of support. Overall, the Converse Pro BB is a solid performance basketball shoe that would come strongly recommended if the traction was more consistent.

Get them! The Converse All Star Pro BB is freaking awesome.

The Converse All Star Pro BB is a really good basketball shoe. I especially liked the one-to-one fit and the lightweight feel but the traction and the insole lining could be improved.

For $140, I would not recommend the Converse Pro BB just because of the inconsistent traction.

The traction and cushioning are A1, but the fit and support are a real lockdown. Wear double socks and an ankle brace and you will have a lot of fun.

I love the show for support and traction but I can’t wear it for very long at a time. The top of insole kind of rubs off if you play in these a lot but once it’s all off the shoe works great.

Very tight, blisters every time i wear them for long periods of time. Cushion is incredibly stiff. Materials feel cheap and there seems to be optimal support. Traction is very good.

Traction is insanely nice and has a really good bite on a clean court. On dusty courts, it picks up a lot of dust but requires only a light wipe to be good again.

The React insole is nice and responsive, but I would have like a little more bounce comparable to the Kobe AD NXT 360.
 More details
The full-length React drop-in midsole felt smooth and offered a slight bounce when brand new.

The full-length React drop-in insole feels a lot stiffer than I am used to from React cushioning. You get a slight bounce, some impact protection but a lot of court feel and responsiveness.

The Nike quad-fit materials are nothing spectacular. Very lightweight and breathable but just not very supportive.

The base is decently wide, and even without an outrigger, I had no problems with lateral stability. The heel counter prevented any heel slippage and the containment as very good thanks to the great fit.

We experienced a lot of heel slippage and a lot of rubbing in the toe box. The tongue also kept moving to the side and you had to readjust all the time.
