When I first saw photos of the Converse MVP Mid sprout online, I just had to try them out. I decided to pick them up and see how the Star Chevron was able to incorporate Nike’s Flywire Technology to their hoop shoe. This is not the first time Nike’s tech trickled down to their other companies (Cole Haan and their Air Soles) but the MVP Mid’s construction got me curious. The high density foam shell (reminds me a lot like those cage shells from AND1 from back in the day) seemed pretty sturdy and the rubber outsole definitely kept me stabilized throughout the use.
As we are in the age of lightweight footwear for basketball, the MVP Mid may not get points in that department but it does score well on stability and support. Ventilation was great with the stripped down inner shell and mesh found on the tongue and lining. Overall, the MVP Mid performed well on the court. If you want your hoop shoes solid, this is definitely an option.
