Converse First String releases the Auckland Racer, the third style from the First String Standards collection. The Converse First String Standards collection is not done in collaboration, but is a collection of very special, hand-picked silhouettes mined from the Converse archives.
Originally designed for running in the 1970s, the Auckland Racer carries a lineage associated with pioneers of the early years of the jogging movement. Today, it’s just a clean, simple silhouette using materials like reflective TPU and nylon mesh, often found in sport apparel from the ‘70s and ‘80s, but repurposed in a sleek, modern manner. The Converse First String Standards Auckland Racer shoes will be available this week and will come in low-top grey, black and enamel blue.
Look out for it at stores such as Bodega, Ubiq, Kicks Hawaiii, St. Alfred and other premium retailers. Thanks Highsnobiety
