For Holiday 2012, Converse and Missoni have joined forces on a pair of sneaker styles featuring Missoni’s signature intarsia knit that takes inspiration from the fashion house’s seasonal men’s collection. First up is the iconic Chuck Taylor All Star, finished in a patchwork Missoni knit with premium leather detailing at the tongue, toe cap, midsole and All Star patch. A green canvas lining provides a contrasting pop of color. The Chucks are joined by the Aukland Racer, featuring an upper crafted from black Missoni space-dyed wool interwoven with metallic copper lame thread. A canvas lining and contrast white rubber sole unit combines a heritage sports feel with the modern aesthetic of the wool upper. The Missoni for Converse Chuck Taylor All Star is scheduled to launch on September 28th, with the Aukland Racer following on October 31st. Both styles will be available at select Converse First String retailers and Missoni boutiques globally.
