Hancock VA x Converse Jack Purcell Mid Collection

Named after the British inventor Thomas Hancock — the father of the British rubber industry —  Hancock VA (short for Vulcanised Articles) is the Scotland-based outerwear company that’s become known for its brightly colored rainwear. Now, under the Converse First String imprint, Hancock has teamed up with the American sportswear giant to develop a collection made up of a trio of Jack Purcell Mids. Each pair features an upper crafted from Hancock’s siphonia elastic bonded rubber outershell for waterproof protection against the elements. Additional details include printed lining, “Hancock 1843″ embossed metal eyelets, tonal stitching, embroidered “HVA” pull tabs and dual branded sockliners. Available in Blazing Yellow, Chateau Grey and Dark Navy, the kicks launch this Saturday at both Up There retail locations in Melbourne. Remaining pairs will be released online the same day at the shop’s online store.

I am uncomfortable with this unless 'Freshness Mag' has an actual print magazine.
