Converse introduced the Auckland Racer in the 1970s, named after the Auckland, New Zealand, native Arthur Lydiard, the athletics coach partly responsible for popularizing the sport of running around the world. UK retailer size? is now set to revive the vintage runner, applying two throwback colorways that evoke the early days of jogging culture. The size? exclusive Converse Auckland Racer uses a mix of premium suede and breathable mesh across the upper, complemented with a stitched Star Chevron trademark, as well as a vintage finish on the midsole. Available in Yellow/Gold/White and Bijou Blue/White/Neon, the Converse Auckland Racer drops exclusively at size? stores and online starting May 24th.
