Converse x Comme des Garçons
Converse and Japanese label Comme des Garçons Play (sub-label cousin of Comme des Garçons shirt) have come together to offer a new interpretation of the iconic Chuck Taylor All Star. The sneakers are embellished with several custom CDG Play signature patches designed by New York artist Filip Pagowski. But they keep the classic rubber sole of the 70s. Converse brings us this iconic model in 2 versions: low top and high top.
The emblematic silhouette of the converse combines sobriety, minimalist style and technicality with a line contrasting white, black, blue or grey depending on the color of the model for men or women. Finally, for lovers of these two iconic brands, note that you can also find other variations of sneakers. Starting with the polka dot model, which is characterized by its polka dot finish. You can also count on the new models of shoes that feature the famous logo of the Japanese label in the form of a frieze affixed above the sole on the side of the pair.
