In September we told you about the multitude of special edition and collaborated Converse that were hitting shop shelves this A/W, here’s a quick update on my pick of the lot. The Wood Wood All Star, made from mono purple suede and brandishing Wood Wood logo on the tongue is now set for release state side tomorrow from DQM.
Converse is older than my Nan, and to celebrate this the geriatric company has brought out some of its lesser known pieces from its 100 year old back catalog. For October Converse Japan has previewed various styles such as the Camping Hi, Weapon Custom Color Ox, All Star Tassel Hi and All Star Rave Hi.
Dr Martens are one of these timeless brands, like Converse, who’s iconic shoes have changed little since they were first conceived, which in both these cases was many a moon before any of us were. DMs fade in and out of obscurity with ease and have for the last few years been bubbling under the surface pulling their profits from the hardcore fans, but I predict a come back. With early 80’s style being so hot right now it takes little imagination to make that jump to skinny acid washed jeans and a pair of Docs, but only time and perhaps our street style posts will tell.
