Maybe it’s just me, but I seem to see and hear about these trainers everywhere. Converse has launched some pretty successful collaborations lately, like the one shown above with Comme des Garçons Play. The traditional Pro Leather will feature an all-over, randomly placed signature PLAY heart pattern, which means that no two pairs of shoes will be the same. It will be released in New York next Tuesday, and later in Europe and Asia. On the other hand, for this Spring, the Auckland Racers model was revamped by Missoni in its typical zigzag designs, a somewhat unexpected partnership, considering that these casual sneakers are made of luxurious materials like wool, lurex and viscose.
For the ones on the Iberian peninsula, this upcoming June, Converse Make Noise makes a comeback. The platform open to emergent bands, will this time take place in Madrid. More info in www.converse.es
