Missoni For Converse – The Spring Collection
I love anything Missoni and that includes their latest collaboration with Converse. Last month the shoe brand showed off their iconic Auckland Racer shoes featuring two new fabric updates for spring. First debuted at the Missoni’s Spring Summer 2013 runway show in Milan, both shoes feature Missoni’s iconic multi-stitch fabric featuring a multi-color and grayscale gradient-fade version.
Each shoe features a wool/viscose upper, premium canvas lining and white rubber soles. The multi-color version features a subtle lamé yarn woven into the fabric.
The Converse First String is a limited-edition collection that celebrates craftsmanship, authenticity and collaboration at the highest level. The Missoni for Converse Auckland Racer are available now in limited quantities at Missoni boutiques and select Converse First String retailers globally. All shoes retail for $200 and will be available in unisex sizing 7 – 13.
Converse in Australia has released their own Missoni for Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Collection as well. These offer women’s only two women’s only silhouettes featuring Missoni’s signature zig-zag raschel knit and a unisex style using their famous multi-stitch space-dyed cotton. As part of Converse First String, the Missoni for Converse Chuck Taylor All Star collection is a limited release and will run at $180 AUD.
