Converse announces the launch of its Holiday 2012 Missoni for Converse Auckland Racer. Originally designed as a running shoe in the 1970s, the Auckland Racer carries a lineage associated with early pioneers of the jogging movement. The shoe is constructed with black Missoni space-dyed wool and highlighted with pops of metallic copper lamé thread, the result is a three-dimensional texture that is reminiscent of Missoni’s iconic knits. The canvas lining and rubber sole maintain the classic style’s sporty heritage while the 100% wool upper is decidedly modern. A release is set for October 31, 2012 in limited quantities at Missoni boutiques and select Converse First String retailers globally. Retail will be $200 USD.
