A creative collective founded by Holly Harnsongkram, Isa Saalabi, Devon Turnbull, and Wil Whitney, Nom de Guerre has been a defining force for young New Yorker’s style for the better part of the past decade. A unique combination of influences from art, fashion, music and various New York City subcultures, the end result is consistently a freshly composed composite of culture and product. The Nom de Guerre for Converse Skid Grip is no exception. A second time collaboration for the two brands, Nom de Guerre selected the Skid Grip CVO model from the Converse archives for its minimal, utilitarian design.

Originally introduced in the early 1960s, the Converse Skid Grip CVO shoe was originally offered for tennis and boating due to its grippy soles. Later it became popular in the 1980s in the surf and “new wave” scenes. Nom de Guerre’s take on the classic shoe uses traditional fabrics with added high-tech touches to update and improve functionality. Rubberized cotton makes it extremely versatile, and gives it a clean and refined look and feel. Very minimal with no accoutrements, the shoe is extremely spare with only a clean Converse license plate logo and a simple Nom de Guerre logo gracing the footbed. The Nom de Guerre for Converse Skid Grip CVO shoe will be available in a low-top rubberized cotton canvas. The shoe launches July 30th at Nom de Guerre in New York City and Los Angeles and will be the first e-commerce offering on Nomdeguerre.net. Retail is set at $95 USD.
