Each season I anticipate to see what’s next for the Missoni for Converse Chuck Taylor All Star collaboration, finally the images have released! Spring 2012 marks the fifth collaboration consisting of two women’s-only silhouettes featuring Missoni’s signature zig-zag raschel knit and a unisex offering using their famous multi-stitch space-dyed cotton.
New this season, Converse works with Missoni to create two women’s-only versions of the shoe with a touch of metallic sparkle added to Missoni’s signature zig zag, knit used in the uppers. Both look stylish and feminine – one in green and white with silver and gold metallic detailing; and another in white and tan with subtle hues of peach accented with silver and gold. Making them truly stand-out, both models include specially constructed white leather rands and toe-wraps embossed with classic Chuck Taylor All Star detailing. The result is an ultra-luxurious, hand-crafted look and feel – surely to be some of the most sought after sneakers of the season.
In addition to the women’s-only versions, a fresh unisex model comes in Missoni’s exclusive multi-stitch, space-dyed fabric in sharp hues of navy and white. Familiar from past Converse and Missoni collaborations, each shoe includes premium leather on the tongue’s upper, logos, heel-pull-tabs and toe caps.
The Missoni for Converse Chuck Taylor All Star shoes will be available in limited quantities, beginning on April 14th at Missoni boutiques and select Converse First String retailers globally. All shoes will retail for a $200 and will be available in unisex sizing 3 – 13.
Can’t wait to get my hands on the shoes, LOVE!
