Let’s be honest — there is certainly no shortage of Converse Chuck Taylor renditions floating out and about in the world today. In fact, the market has become somewhat over-saturated with them, but the brand still tends to produce a gem here and there. Just so happens that one such scheme has surfaced in the form of the Chuck Taylor Specialty Ox. Featuring solid uppers, matched with a tonal toe box and tonal laces, the near royal blue drop seen here is a must for your Spring/Summer 2011 repertoire. So cop accordingly through the UK’s Crooked Tongues for $65.
Debuted just last night by Wiz Khalifa, during his performance on The Late Show with David Letterman, Ronnie Fieg’s latest purely heat offering has now surfaced (lucky for us) and is slated for a Friday release. The one of four make-up within the Fieg x Converse Star Player 75 line-up dons leather atop leather atop perforated calf-skin lining. All premium, all the time. And if the quality components don’t set you over the top, when have you seen a more fierce colorway than the all-red-everything utilized here? That’s right — we didn’t think so. But limited to solely 250 pairs, we suggest you set your alarm for Friday, April 15 at 10am, where the Red Converse Star Player 75 Low Deluxe will be available through the David Z. flagship in NY and online, for $105. Ready, set, go. Hit the jump for a closer look, as well as the footage of Young Khalifa stuntin’ on ‘em.
The guru, Mr. Ronnie Fieg is back at it. This time linking with the iconic Converse brand in the re-working of a classic duo, the Star Player 75 Lo and Hi. Utilizing premium calfskin leather, these tonal beauties are undeniably a little something for the grown and sexy. Leather laces set both silos off, as this set is a must-have when they drop on March 18th via DavidZ. As only 300 units will be available, we suggest you act fast, as the Navy Hi’s are retailing for $110 and the Olive Ox Lo for $105.
Bet you cats forgot that Converse does indeed have other models besides the iconic Chuck Taylor All Star (we forgive you though). Presented is the long time brand’s Poorman Pro Lo Ox silo, gifted in a predominantly canvas upper with hints of suede thrown in on the heel and toe regions. The monochromatic offering is available now via select Converse accounts worldwide. Diversify, kids. Hit the jump for a closer look.
I don’t own a single pair of “boat shoes” but that may change shortly due to these Converse Sea Stars. The hybrid model comes in two brand new colorways, black and evergreen and will get you looking fresh throughout the Spring and Summer months. They feature full suede uppers, a standard white midsole and the converse tag on the side of the heel. Hit the jump to check out a few more detailed images and then head over to Primitive to pick yourself up a pair.
With online shopping being all the rage as of late, especially amidst a crazily hectic holiday season, Converse has decided to aid in relieving the stress of actually going out and trying on sneakers. Presented is their premiere iPhone application, The Sampler, which allows you to virtually “try on” any of their models and view it on your own foot, via telephone screen. Simply take a picture of your leg/foot, select the targeted shoe, and then get a glimpse of what it will look like on your foot – virtual shopping at its finest. A more detailed description and additional imagery after the jump.
Undefeated continuing their relationship with footwear brand Converse present a look of their latest collaboration. The high top consist if the Poorman Weapon model which features a nylon fabric along with militant grey colorway. The sneakers are set to drop November 26th, 2010 at Undefeated retailers.
Disclosure, this has nothing to do with sneakers, not that kind of Converse. Anyhow, Rubber Tracks will serve as a fully functional, state of the art, recording studio, located in Brooklyn, NY, available to all realms of musical artists to take advantage of its facilities, free of charge. A truly great service, centered smack dab in the heart of one of the more bustling artistic areas in the country, this is undoubtedly a great example of impacting and enhancing the creative vision of young musicians.
