Introduced in 1969 as the “PRO-Ked Super”, the 69er was the first classic sneaker for New Yorkers on and off the court. Also known as the original “Uptowns” with kids in Harlem & the Bronx, they were made famous by basketball legends as well as by the pioneers of hip-hop. The traditional rubber toe cap has been replaced with a nice premium suede toe cap. Also look out for some great collaborations on this classic, releasing later this season.
