Converse x Margiela

Converse have revealed their second footwear collection with French fashion house, Maison Martin Margiela. The ‘First String’ collection expands the white overpaint concept with the All Star Chuck ‘70 and Jack Purcell in white, hand-painted, ultra-soft premium leather.

With wear, the more the overpaint loosens; cracking to reveal the hidden, bold colour beneath. Available in 4 colour-ways: Amber Glow and True Navy with the All Star Chuck ’70 and Azure Blue and Biking Red with the Jack Purcell. The shoes also feature a discreet Maison Martin Margiela logo on the tongue, and both are finished with painted and non-painted lace options.

Converse First String is a limited edition collection and is available for purchase globally at Converse San Francisco, Santa Monica and Soho stores, Maison Martin Margiela stores, and at select First String retailers for a suggested retail price of £205 GBP.
