Well Cons really, but that lacks impact. This week has seen many a colab and limited edition from Converse, jump through for a very brief run down.
You should all be grateful. I was this close to typing ‘Converse starts boxing clever’ in that headline. It’s hard to talk about these Converses without thinking about boxing as the reduction of the sole makes them look more suited for 12 rounds in the ring.
As far as gold trainers go these are ok, but they don’t look better than the other pair of gold Converses we posted a while back. If you like the boxing-style ones better, they’ll be available from next week.
We rarely feature Converse because they’re so popular there’s next to no point in doing so. Even the special editions are worn by every Tarquin, Richard and Harold. With all that said, I am particularly looking forward to these leather jacket trainers.
The zips are useless, but they’re also the detail that sets these apart from standard Converse’s. Most special edition All Stars just have a snazzy pattern or colourway, so it’s nice to see a pair actually deviate from the blueprint for once. These will be available in specialised stores from July.
