CONS:

  • Requires a lot of wiping on dusty courts

Summary of 3 Expert Reviews:

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.

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.

Traction of the Converse All Star Pro BB:

9.0
The Sole Brothers
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 traction of full-translucent rubber is very inconsistent and picks up a lot of dust.

The React insole is nice and responsive, but I would have like a little more bounce comparable to the Kobe AD NXT 360.

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 mix of mesh and canvas make for a very minimal basketball shoe with barely enough support for gameplay.

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.
