Now in their sixth season together the Converse and Missoni collaboration unite the longstanding iconic fabric of Missoni with the Converse star start at $200.00 for a piece of this art.
“The Converse Pro Leather and Auckland Racer shoes each helped to usher in the modern era of basketball and running respectively,” says Penny Ericson, vice president of Converse Jack Purcell and Premium, in an article on Ecouterre.com. “And we are excited to unite these iconic designs with the rich heritage of Missoni and the inspiring artistry of Gary Card.”
As a follow up to the Converse Missoni Archive Project collection, Converse will also launch the Holiday 2012 Missoni for Converse Auckland Racer that debuted on the Missoni Fall/Winter 2012 runway in Milan.
