Converse reveals KA-One Vulc & skateboarding footwear line
Jul '12
Converse Inc. announces its Fall 2012 skateboarding footwear collection with the addition of Converse Skate Ambassador Kenny Anderson’s latest signature KA-One Vulc shoe and updated KA-One colorways.

New styles from the Converse Form and Function Collection strip down classic Converse models to their most simple form, creating footwear that truly performs for today’s skateboarders.


Converse Skate Ambassador Kenny Anderson’s KA-One signature shoe returns this season with an update in the form of the KA-One Vulc. The KA-One Vulc features Converse Engineered for Destruction technology, including abrasion resistant suede, a specially developed Converse molded OrthoLite Sockliner for long-lasting cushion that doesn’t compromise board feel, and the iconic Converse All Star traction rubber vulcanized sole.

Anderson personally put these innovations to the test in a series of short films titled “KA-One Vulc: Engineered for Destruction”.  From L.A. to Vegas, the KA-One Vulc withstands the ultimate wear test with Kenny’s relentless hours on his skateboard to Kenny’s daring attempts to ‘destruct’ the shoe. A true testament to Converse’s Engineered for Destruction technology, the KA-One Vulc is available in suede in black/white and lunar rock/varsity red/black.
