Rock is very much alive and well in the newest Converse by John Varvatos sneaker collection. Launching this spring, the collection celebrates the 40th Anniversary of punk, a defining moment in music history. Worn-in leather, metal studs, zippers and rock-inspired colors – some of the archetypes that exemplified punk style years ago – have collided to create a collection that synergizes the worlds of fashion with music.
With its subtle edge, the Deck Star Slip ’67 silhouette in rusty leather offers an easy alternative to a lace-up sneaker for the summer. Skinny leather stitching adorns the heel and frames the laces of the Chuck Taylor All Star Artisan Stitch. A metal zipper winds around the Chuck Taylor All Star Tornado Zip and comes in perforated sand-colored suede and burnished red and black leather for an unafraid, street-inspired look. The All Star Multi Stud sneakers gets the rock star treatment with gradient clusters of studs wrapped underneath a soft, black leather upper.
The Converse by John Varvatos Punk Collection is now available at Converse retailers like John Varvatos retailers, JohnVarvatos.com and Converse.com. Retail prices range from $125 to $235.
