ELEVATE YOUR SNEAKERS WITH BOLD ZIGZAGS

Converse and Missoni fans alike will rejoice as the two powerhouses return to collaborate on their latest iteration of the celebrated Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Missoni collection. Partners since 2010, this season’s Spring 2016 collection returns with new reinterpreted styles, embodying two of the most iconic elements in fashion, Missoni's renowned zigzags and Converse's classic Chuck Taylor All Star silhouette.

This spring, the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Missoni collection introduces a printed canvas silhouette with woven metallic threading and boasts angular lines, amply named “The Flame.” This silhouette integrates a lurax metallic threading for the perfect amount of fashion-forward shimmer. The premium line consists of two high-top and two low-top oxford styles available in spring-ready colors including Blue, Egret, Auburn and an all-season Black. Detailing includes a leather tongue and heel tab, making it the perfect sneaker from the runway to the streets.

The new Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Missoni collection is now available starting Thursday, March 3, 2016 at Converse retail stores and online at Converse.com for a suggested retail price of $95-100 USD.
