I’m still a big fan of the Missoni for Converse collection, so I’m really excited for the Holiday 2012 launch featuring the Auckland Racer and Chuck Taylor All Star in signature intarsia knit. The Chuck Taylor All Star shoe features a “patchwork Missoni knit and premium leather detailing. The bold green canvas lining is mirrored by a subtle pop of green on the shoe’s soles. A premium leather tongue features the Missoni logo and is complemented by the signature Chuck Taylor All Star patch. The Auckland Racer is constructed with black Missoni space-dyed wool and highlighted with pops of metallic copper lamé thread, the result is a three dimensional texture that is reminiscent of Missoni’s iconic knits. The canvas lining and rubber sole maintain the classic style’s sporty heritage while the 100% wool upper is decidedly modern.”
The Chuck Taylor All Star shoes released on September 28th and the Auckland Racer will be available on October 31st in limited quantities at Missoni boutiques and select Converse First String retailers globally. All shoes will retail for $200 and will be available in unisex sizing 3 – 13.
