SneakersNStuff‘s first ever collaboration with CONVERSE released in 2010, taking the form of a Chuck Taylor All Star crafted from knit wool inspired by the Swedish Lovikka mitten. (The winter accessory is named after Erika Aittamaa, who made the mittens in the late 1890s to support her family.) With fans of that first project clamoring for a sequel, SneakersNStuff and CONVERSE are set to heed the call, releasing a second Lovikka All Star that’s nearly identical to the first pair. This latest iteration swaps out the off-white coloring for a grey mélange upper; otherwise, the shoe keeps the same heel tassel and branding, as well as the vintage Chuck Taylor sole unit with red/yellow/blue foxing stripe. Look for the Sneakersnstuff x Converse Lovikka All Star to launch December 13th at Sneakersnstuff stores and online.
