Converse and UK sneaker retailer size? team up for an exclusive re-release of the classic Auckland Racer in two heritage-inspired colorways.
A model from the early days of jogging, the Auckland Racer by Converse returns all these years later, looking like it came straight out of the archives.
A world exclusive release, we decided to take this understated runner and apply two vintage running inspired colourways, evoking the colours and mood seen and felt during the heyday of the running culture. Utilising a mix of premium nappy suede and breathable mesh throughout, the shoe’s simple profile is accented perfectly with a vintage coloured midsole and stitched Star Chevron branding that stands out from the upper.
The size? worldwide exclusive Converse Auckland Racer will be available in runner yellow/gold/white and bijou blue/white/neon yellow from all size? stores and online in sizes 6-11 (UK) on Friday 24th May, priced at £60/75€.
