A STAR IS REBORN AND THIS TIME THE SKIN IS SEE-THROUGH

EXCLUSIVE: OFF-WHITE X CONVERSE CHUCK TAYLOR ALL STAR

Sneakerheads, after months of hype the wait is over – the OFF-WHITE x Converse Chuck Taylor All Star has dropped, and we may be witnessing the shoe make-over of the century. The most conspicuous feature of these freshly minted hi tops is the translucent material that extends across the upper. This ‘ghosting’ technology exposes the details of the shoe’s original 1970’s design, with “Converse” and other script stamped across the fabric. Creative director Virgil Abloh has further pimped up this footwear icon with industrial design features that are typical of his streetwear brand. The word “VULCANIZED” is emblazoned on the midsole and “SHOELACES” appears on the laces. A red cable tie completes the look – the tag can of course be snipped off but we’re guessing most wearers will be proud to leave it intact. These shoes are selling fast – you’ll need to swish if you want to score a pair.
