The collection includes the Missoni for Converse Auckland Racer, which first debuted on the Missoni Fall Winter 2012 runway in Milan. The Auckland Racer and converse run star hike homme styles feature Missoni’s signature intarsia knit and are inspired by the brand’s seasonal men’s collection.
The collection is highlighted by the converse chuck taylor noir, introduced to consumers last year and inspired by the Extreme Cold Weather Boot (a military rubber boot once produced by Converse in the 1950s). The seasonal installment also sees the reintroduction of the Bosey silhouette into the Converse line-up, marked with a rugged toe guard from the 1940s and reinterpreted to provide added traction and protection today.
The upcoming shoefilledwith.com Pack consists of three monochromatic styles that boast velvety suede uppers. These bright red, blue, and green pairs all feature the signature lightning star adorning the sides in smooth white leather. More touches of the stark white are applied to the embossed ape logo at the hindfoot and the BAPE text on the heel tab. A silver, branded lace dubrae and metallic eyelets complete the designs, along with the usual white rubber outsole.
