Releasing in store Friday, May 14th at 11:00 AM PDT is the Converse Ben Raemers One Star Pro Mid.
This One Star Pro Mid has been built in collaboration with the Ben Raemers Foundation in honor of Ben and his life. The Ben Raemers Foundation aims to break the stigma and burden that so often clouds issues of mental health by bringing awareness to the forefront within the wider skateboarding community. The One Star Pro Mid aims to serve as a reminder that if you or someone you know is struggling, it is always ok to ask for help and reach out.
Converse will be making a $25,000 donation to the Ben Raemers Foundation, which is committed to eradicating the stigma around mental health within skateboarding.
