At a great cost to human rights and democracy, political strongman Mobutu Sese Seko highhandedly created the nation of Zaire in Central Africa, only to see it fall apart near the end of his life. Now known as Congo, traces of Mobutu’s reign have disappeared for the most part except the ones in historical archives, such as the Zaire Leopard Camo. Born out of Mobutu’s fascination with leopard skin, who made it a fashion statement for all of his political appearances, the Zairean Armed Forces actually used the print in 1970s well into the 1990s. The pattern also gotten an update in the form of the CONCEPTS x CONVERSE Chuck Taylor All Star Hi 1970s “Zaire Leopard Camo.” Part of its militarism design theme for this season, the Boston-based retailer re-dressed the Chuck Taylor All Star Hi 1970s silhouette in full battle gear. It even altered the design’s heel loops into bandolier to hold additional “ammo.” Complete with laces in olive drab and enamel pins, the “Zaire Leopard Camo” edition of CONVERSE Chuck Taylor All Star Hi 1970s is available now via CONCEPTS’ Boston location and its online store.
