OKC Thunder guard is about to release the “chase the drip” pack
Last year, Converse announced the expansion of its booming basketball roster with the addition of OKC Thunder goalie Shai Gilgeous-Alexander. An electric player, known for his astute play on the pitch and expressive style off the pitch, Shai has since been given the creative authority to inform the design language on some of Converse’s key silhouettes. In the process, he channeled his interior designer to design special iterations of the Pro Leather Ox and the Chuck 70 Hi. And just like Shai’s play, both figures improve over time.
The Chase the Drip x SGA Chuck 70 Hi and Pro Leather Ox will be available in a limited global version starting this Friday, October 1, in-store and online at Foot Locker, Champs Sports and Footaction, and Converse.com.
The Chase the Drip x SGA Chuck 70 Hi features a white ripstop denim upper that ages over time to reveal a blue tie-dye graphic underneath. Shai’s passion for savings continues to inspire the shoe, as a pirated midsole accommodates additional pieces of vulcanized tape on each heel. Trims include white Chuck patches on each medial side, as well as a frayed edge on the collar and tongue.

The Chase the Drip x SGA Pro Leather Ox adopts a monochrome aesthetic. Dipped in a bold college blue, SGA’s initials replace the classic Pro leather signature stamp on either side. Subtle pops of white are also incorporated into the design, applied to the heel logo, sock liner and Star Chevron branding on each lateral and medial side.
“Either you ride the wave or you create it, and Converse has given me the creative freedom to really influence the look and feel of these Chuck 70 Hi and Pro Leather Ox Chase the Drip shoes. I am a strong believer in letting your individual style shine. There are personal touches throughout, and the Chuck 70 Hi’s tear-off denim upper ultimately reveals a graphic, so the design changes over time, as does my style. Having them at Foot Locker, Champs Sports and Footaction, brands at the heart of youth and sneaker culture, is major. I’m proud of this collaboration and can’t wait to see it on the streets. said franchise OKC Thunder face Shai Gilgeous-Alexander.
