Ultimate Sneaker: Missoni-Converse Collaboration
April 17, 2012 | by —Michelle Ward | Homepage
The spring 2012 Missoni for Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Collection marks the fifth collaboration between the brands and features three new styles, including a unisex pair in navy and white (featured). After debuting this past Saturday, the space-dyed, multi-stitched kicks are now available locally at Missoni’s Beverly Hills flagship, the Fred Segal Center on Melrose, and Undefeated’s Santa Monica, Los Angeles, and Silverlake locations. Colorful, zigzag patterns reminiscent of Missoni’s signature style make these limited-edition sneakers (along with the collection’s women’s-only silhouettes) well worth the $200 price tag.
