Converse continues its partnership with premium Italian knit-wear company Missoni with the release of the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star ’70 x Missoni “Hiker.”
Inspired by the iconic Chuck Taylor All Star ’70 and classic hiking shoes, the hi-top sneaker’s Missoni multicolor, zig-zag wool upper reflects the breathtaking mountains of Ladakh, which attracted a number of rebellious spirits in the 1970s.
Also featuring suede detailing and two-tone cotton lace, the shoes were first featured on the catwalk during Missoni’s men’s fashion show in Milan on 16th January, 2016.
The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star ’70 x Missoni “Hiker” launches on 4th November 2016 and will be sold online.
The collaboration will be available in two colorways, Slate Black/Olive and Moroccan Blue.
