Italian fashion label Missoni teams up with Converse for an ultra-premium version of the Chuck Taylor.
The Missoni x Converse Chuck Taylor features an upper constructed of Missoni woven textiles with triangular geometric patterns in grey, brown, and green. In place of the usual rubber midsole of the Chuck Taylor is leather embossed with the textures of the original rubber, as well as a leather wrapped midsole and toe cap. More embossed leather is seen with the Missoni logo on the tongue and Chuck Taylor logo in its usual place.
The Missoni x Converse Chuck Taylor is available now at select Converse and Missoni retailers like Kith NYC for $200.
