Longtime collaborative partners, Converse and Italian knitwear house Missoni join forces once again with the new Converse Deck Star Slip ’67 Missoni sneakers for fall. The sneakers take inspiration from the Missoni Men’s Winter 2015 collection, capturing the romantic essence of an artist and his travels along the Trans-Siberian-Manchurian rail line.
The Converse Deck Star silhouette is enhanced with a thick, chunky space-dyed elasticated cashmere upper that is ideal for the colder weather that comes with the winter months. Premium satin is applied to the back of the sneakers to deliver a more elevated look while the colors reflect the darker, earthy hues of the landscape – the mountains, rivers and forests -that the artist passes on his journey.
Converse First String is a limited-edition collection that celebrates craftsmanship, authenticity and collaboration at the highest level. The Converse Deck Star Slip ’67 Missoni sneakers will be available starting Friday, November 13 for a suggested retail price of $250 USD at Converse retail stores, select first string retailers and online at Converse.com.
