The Holiday 2014 Converse All Star Chuck ‘70 Missoni Collection Provides Premium Internal Warmth And Comfort For Winter
CONVERSE, Inc. announces the Converse All Star Chuck ‘70 Missoni Collection for Holiday 2014, marking its ninth First String collaboration with the refined Italian fashion house.
The collection originally debuted on the Missoni Fall Winter 2014 runway in Milan, perfectly blending premium materials with seasonal earthy tones to create luxurious internal warmth and comfort for winter.
The Converse All Star Chuck ‘70 Missoni Zip Suede pays homage to Japanese “boro” patchwork, combining three varied brown suede tones on the sneaker’s upper to create a subtle, yet contrasting tri-panel look. The cozy interior is lined with custom Missoni mohair, a durable yarn made from the hair of Angora goats that is renowned for its high luster – in this case enhanced by the addition of a subdued Missoni chevron pattern.
The sneaker features antique brass eyelets, rounded leather laces and suede toecaps, as well as a lateral zipper that allows the wearer to slip the foot in and out without lacing, for additional comfort and ease. Other details include an ankle patch executed in black leather with a white deboss logo print, solid white midsole foxing and gum rubber outsoles. The signature Missoni terracotta color found on each sockliner completes the collection’s incredible attention to detail.Converse First String is a limited-edition collection that celebrates craftsmanship, authenticity and collaboration at the highest level.
