Converse and knitwear legend Missoni drop another collaboration.
Presenting two new styles, I can’t say I’m fond of both. The first, that looks as though grandma may have went crazy with the knitting needles, is lined with Missoni’s signature fabric. Genuine sheep wool lines the inside, while the outter lacing area has untamed shearling wool making it a bit difficult to see the laces. The second however, which is the ones I prefer, pays homage to Japanese ‘boro’ patchwork by using three different types of suede, which creates a patchwork effect, and lined with Angora hair. Both pairs also have a zip feature which also looks great.
Coming out 5th December, these winter ready All stars will only be available at a few stores worldwide. So keep your eyes peeled.
