Rather than simply print a camo pattern atop the Converse One Star's usual materials, the team at Sneakersnstuff opted for a multi-textured patchwork look made up of both leather and suede in traditional "Canteen" camouflage and a purple-accented "Deep Lavender." The resulting look is one that mimics the ERDL pattern used by the U.S. from the late '40s to the late '60s. Further changes include Sneakersnstuff branding on the midsole and heel.
"We wanted to elevate the print by stitching leather together in a slow, unnatural process," said Peter Jansson, co-founder of Sneakersnstuff. "We do not believe in taking shortcuts. This is not fast fashion. The collection is thorough, genuine, and displays a high level of craftsmanship."
Along with the footwear, Sneakersnstuff kept the theme going on a range of apparel including a Gore-Tex coaches jacket and long-sleeve T-shirts.
Available exclusively from all Sneakersnstuff locations and sneakersnstuff.com beginning Thursday, April 12, the One Star sneakers retail for $109 apiece.
