This tasteful collection of Converse First String models, the iconic Converse Auckland Racer and Pro Leather, all feature Missoni’s all-over prints and textiles that equate to an astonishing final product. Each sneaker model showcases brilliant patterns, colors, and signature Converse branding.
In addition to the release, London-based artist, Gary Card, has been commissioned to construct a psychedelic installation at colette that accurately reflects the all-over-print motifs of the sneaker collection. Furthermore, a limited run of hand-numbered hard cover books will accompany the shoes, all of which feature the same terracotta canvas as seen on each pair from the collection.
With a release date of Friday, September 28th, the Missoni x Converse “Archive Project” will retail for 400€ (approximately $517 USD) with a size run of US 5-12, exclusively at colette.
