Converse has announced the launch of the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star ’70 PLAY COMME des GARÇONS sneaker collection. This is Converse’s fourth collaboration with the Japanese fashion house.
The collaboration team has created an exclusive four pair collection of premium All Star Chuck 70 sneakers in ox and high-top silhouettes. The range includes milk and heavy grade black canvas uppers, with a higher midsole in solid white, a smaller toe box, reinforced canvas heel strips, nickel hardware, thick cotton laces, and a cushioned sockliner for comfort. The design also features the signature heart logo by New York-based graphic artist Filip Pagowski, which is placed behind the midsoles.
The limited edition collection will be exclusively released on the 14th of May at Dover Street Market stores in London and New York as well as on the Dover Street Market website, and at COMME des GARÇONS New York. Other retailers will begin selling the sneakers on the 15th of May.
