Before we dive into the details for these sneakers, let me walk you through some background!

The Roswell Rayguns

Sole Collector

The Converse chuck 70 was famous on basketball courts during the ’70s and ’80s. even Michael Jordan preferred playing in them rather than other Nike sneakers at first. The Chuck 70s were so famous at the time that they captured over 70% of the basketball sneaker market during the ’70s.

The Converse Pro leather released in 1976 and also dominated the basketball sneaker market along with the Chuck 70. Being Converse’s first full-grain leather hoop shoe at a reasonable price, the Pro Leather lived on for decades to come.

The Roswell Rayguns, on the other hand, is a fictional ABA team created by Nike for their basketball sneaker campaign in the 2000s.

The story is about a struggling team in 1975 until their mid-season when some beings from another planet come to visit. A character named “Dr.Funk” walks out with a team of All-Stars and they go on to dominate the sport.

From this story, came the Iconic Nike SB Dunk low Rayguns that were advertised as special “Time-Traveling shoes” in a Rayguns-themed colorway.

Nike’s latest Converse Chuck 70 and Pro Leather “Raygun” sneakers are set to release soon. To help you decide whether to cop or drop for resale, let’s head over to StockX.

First up is the Converse Chuck 70. Donning a clean white canvas upper, it’s contrasted by a “Raygun” pattern along with its Off-White midsole. Rayguns and Converse branding cover the insoles and side collars while a white outsole completes the look.

Then comes the blacked-out Converse Pro Leather that’s contrasted by a similar “Raygun” patter along the lateral sides. Branding on the tongue and insoles add an additional layer of detail while an off-white sole finishes off the look.

Estimated Resell

I believe these may sell out in smaller sizes, however, I wouldn’t expect profits too high if any. Using my estimated resell value, I expect profits of around $20 per pair.

If you’r trying to cop, make sure you go for personal sizes.

Where to Buy

You can buy both these sneakers at select retailers and Converse.com on January 15th at 10:00 am EDT. The retail prices are $85 and $95 for the Pro Leather and Chuck 70 respectively.
