Converse First String Auckland Racer Converse

July 15, 2010

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

united-bamboo-converse-1hundred-chuck-taylorConverse looks towards New York-based label united bamboo for another contribution into its 1HUND(RED) Artist Series program. The shoes are offered as a Chuck Taylor but they’ve been changed around so much that they hardly resemble what would be considered a classic Chuck Taylor silhouette. A bit sleeker than other interpretations, this united bamboo design features a quilted upper with hidden laceloops, White tonal colorway and Red highlights. Available now via the honeyee online store.

Converse jack Purcell Racearound High

August 19, 2009

converse-jack-purcell-black-high-540x360Converse have added a fresh new style to their roster for Fall 2009. The Jack Purcell Racearound High features several clean details such as a tumbled leather upper with suede overlays, contrast white stitching and round leather laces. Most noteworthy, however, is the lack of a rubber toe cap, endowing a sleek, modern look upon the heritage-inspired silhouette. Rest assured the signature “smiley” remains intact, although it’s been moved to the midsole. Now available at select Converse dealers including Concepts 37 Brattle Street location in Boston.
