Get Five On It — Converse’s Fifth Collaboration with Missoni Hits Stores Today
It’s been two years since all-American sneaker brand Converse first teamed up with Italian fashion house Missoni to create a limited-edition collection of Chuck Taylor All Star hi-top sneakers featuring woven canvas uppers in designs that convey the classic Missoni aesthetic. Today, sneakerheads and fashionistas alike can rejoice over the release of the fifth Converse x Missoni collection, which includes three styles so chic that they subvert the notion of kicks as casualwear.
The Missoni for Converse Chuck Taylor All Star collection, then, includes three lace-up, hi-top canvas sneakers with limited-edition woven Missoni prints featuring a hint of sparkle due to the incorporation of metallic threads. Two of the three Chuck Taylor All Stars in the collection incorporate the zig zag motifs that have become synonymous with Missoni garments and accessories — one in a white design with sandy beige, pale gold, and light sea foam green accents (as shown last from top), and the other in a teal green and white color scheme with hints of yellow gold (as shown second from top).
The final design is a unisex model featuring a multi-stitched linear pattern that’s far from symmetrical, making it feel less geometric and structured than the other two sneakers, giving it a slightly abstract and modern edge. This deep denim blue and white hi-top sneaker also features a blue leather toecap, blue eyelets, a blue tongue, and blue laces.
All sneakers in the Missoni for Converse Chuck Taylor All Star collection retail for $200 each and are available at Converse.com, Missoni stores around the globe, Jeffrey’s, Fred Segal, and Aloha Rag in NYC and Honolulu.
