Converse First String Auckland Racer

Converse First String releases the Auckland Racer, the third style from the First String

Converse First String releases the Auckland Racer, the third style from the First String Standards collection. The Converse First String Standards collection is not done in collaboration, but is a collection of very special, hand-picked silhouettes mined from the Converse archives. Originally designed for running in the 1970s, the Auckland Racer carries a lineage associated with pioneers of the early years of the jogging movement. Today, it’s just a clean, simple silhouette using materials like reflective TPU and nylon mesh, often found in sport apparel from the ‘70s and ‘80s, but re-purposed in a sleek, modern manner. The Converse First String Standards Auckland Racer shoes will be available this week and will come in low-top grey, black and enamel blue. Retail is set at $80 USD, with availability through Bodega (Boston), Just Be (Portland), KICKS/HI (Honolulu), Nice Kicks (Austin), Shoe Gallery (Miami), St. Alfred (Chicago), and UBIQ (Philadelphia).
