Iconic hand-painted texture:

The $200 Chuck Taylor All Star and Jack Purcell Converse sneakers are not only handcrafted in premium wet-white leather, but completely hand-painted in MMM’s signature white paint.

Unique DIY wear-pattern:

It’s not anybody’s fault that the paint is cracking all over. Do not under any circumstances take off scratches, as MMM converse designed to naturally shed their outer coat of white paint to reveal its authentic colors beneath: red, navy, black, and one of a kind vintage yellow (styles vary based on Converse heritage colors)
