Converse x Ben Raemers Foundation

21 May, 2021




In May of 2019, at the age of 29, CONS Team Rider Ben Raemers took his life. His passion for skateboarding and his approach to life were contagious. He is remembered as a loving son, brother, friend, and inspiration. 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.
