Thanks to a first look provided by Instagram user spicychickenwings, the Jerry Lorenzo-led fashion label will soon introduce what appears to be a high-top skate model. Unlike the muted color palettes from its previous collabs, this pair dons a multicolored graphic on the canvas upper while co-branding is applied to the soles.
Launch details including release date and pricing for this FOG Essentials x Converse have not yet been announced by the brands, but keep it locked to Sole Collector for updates.
UPDATE (08/20): Today, Converse has confirmed its next collaboration with Lorenzo's FOG Essentials line, which features the Skidgrip model and is set to release next week. The shoe debuted in 1910 (then known as the Circular Vamp Oxford, or CVO) and later caught the attention of Lorenzo after he saw a pair in the mall during the late '80s. The version he saw sported bold prints and serves as the inspiration behind this collab.
"Everything we've tried to do starts from a place of honesty," Lorenzo stated. "We picked the Skidgrip because it was a shoe that I loved when I was younger. Our aim in bringing back a silhouette that has been perhaps overlooked is to bring it a fresh relevance.
The FOG Essentials x Converse Skidgrip debuts on Aug. 27 at select retailers with additional versions of the Skidgrip arriving in September. Retail pricing is set at $120.
