The latest collaboration between Converse and Stussy takes the classic One Star ’74 silhouette – one highly rooted in both street and skate culture – and elevates it with three iconic Stussy graphics.
Since inception in 1980, Stussy has taken its California-inspired surf and skate culture roots worldwide. The brand is defined by unique graphic designs, and on the Converse One Star ’74 x Stussy collection, three of the most familiar graphics — the crown emblem, the dice, and the 8 ball — adorn the tongue of one of each of the colorways (Mauve Mist, Black, and Hunter Green). All authentic details from the original Converse One Star ’74 model are also preserved, from the high foxing tape to the vintage license plate, resulting in a collection that is a true representation of both brands’ heritage.
"Coming together with Stussy on the One Star collection was a very natural thing, as Stussy embodies the relaxed California vibe so well," says Ian Ginoza, Director of Brand and Product Marketing Energy. "They have a very real connection to the communities and cultures that embrace One Star, making it a perfect fit."
Executed in bold colored hairy suede, the three sneakers are further enhanced with the addition of a black midsole. Additional features include a Stussy linked logo outsole and graphic-printed insole.
The new Converse One Star ’74 x Stussy collection will launch on December 2 at Converse retail stores, on Converse.com and select global accounts.
