July 27, 2018 - The host state for the 2018 WNBA All-Star Game is front and center for the event’s footwear collection from Nike, featuring special Minnesota-inspired colorways of six basketball shoes.
Purple — the color of royalty, of the state’s football team, and of its musical hero — is consistent throughout the PE collection. The two-block divide reflects a play between the Twin Cities, Minneapolis and Saint Paul. The ripple pattern refers to the state's vast number of lakes, as well as the waves being created in the modern women's game.
"The All-Star shoes are fire across the board," says four-time WNBA champion Seimone Augustus of the Minnesota Lynx. "I can't wait to wear the KYRIE 4 and pay tribute to the land of 10,000 lakes."
The 2018 WNBA All-Star Game PE collection includes special colorways of the LEBRON 15, LEBRON Soldier XII, KD11, KYRIE 4, PG2, and the KOBE A.D.

The satin textile upper of the football cleat features a zipper to secure the shoelaces, while the original ceramic composite aluminum plate is replaced by carbon fiber.

September 18, 2018 - Converse's newest silhouette, the Run Star, juxtaposes heritage running style with exaggerated tooling. Taking cues from classic Converse styles, the result is a contemporary look designed to be distorted. (The upper, for example, is ripe for remixing — as JW Anderson has already proved during his Spring 2019 London runway show). What will remain constant is the Run Star's hallmark feature: An unapologetic, big and bold EVA midsole finished with a rubber heel wrap and instantly recognizable Star.
The shoe, in its first public incarnation, is available now at converse.com.

September 17, 2018 - Since 1989, Carhartt Work In Progress has been carefully adapting and modifying Carhartt's iconic workwear products for an audience that values refined design and detailing, while still remaining true to the brand’s origins.
The Converse x Carhartt WIP One Star collection applies this same approach by preparing the silhouette with a Cordura® fabric upper that is robustly functional and considerate to the original design. Embellishments include a tongue logo patch made from the coated tarp-like material seen on the trailer coverings of long-distance trucks, and hangtag and D-ring hardware details at the heel.
The collection, which includes classic black, olive and white colorways, launches September 20 on converse.com, carhartt-wip.com and select retailers.
