An alumnus to Converse.
“L.A. TO VEGAS” is a short film celebrating the launch of Kenny’s pro sneaker, the KA-ONE. Watch Kenny attempt the longest nose manual in history from his current home in Los Angeles to his hometown of Las Vegas. On the journey, he passes by iconic landmarks like Cherry Park in Long Beach, the L.A. River, the 405, and the desert, before he hits the Vegas strip and finally his old neighborhood. He is joined by many of the friends who have influenced him, his skating, and who have helped him get to where he is today. This isn’t just a homecoming back to Las Vegas, it is a return to Converse, the brand where it all started for Kenny.
Kenny Anderson returns better than ever as an alumnus to Converse, having been on the original team in 1997. Kenny’s smooth, consistent style and fluidity on a skateboard is no doubt, untouchable. His reemergence on the team stands out as one that is natural and sincere. Kenny’s rightful return to Converse is seen as a sort of homecoming by the entire Converse skate team.
