Continuing with the success of their Spring 2010 collaboration, Converse and Missoni link up for two new Fall 2010 styles. The result includes updated versions of the classic Chuck Taylor All Star shoe with black and white space dyed knits covering the sides and toecap, finished off with soft sheep leather in “Missoni Brick Red” on the split tongue, heel pull tab and partially lined collar – all brand new updates for the Fall 2010 silhouette. Due to the unique space dyed technique used this season, each shoe is one of a kind as the knits are carefully spun to vary from piece to piece.

Part of Converse First String, the brand’s most premium tier product program, the collaboration uses the exclusive-to-First String version of the iconic Chuck Taylor All Star silhouette originally created for the military in the 1960s. This season, two patterns round out the Fall offering; one being a single bed space dyed knit displaying bold horizontal stripes, while the other silhouette is outfitted in the notorious Missoni zigzag pattern, created by a unique technique called Raschel revived by the Missoni house in the late ‘60s for high-end fashion. The shoes will launch in early September at Missoni boutiques (New York and Beverly Hills), as well as other select retailers globally. Retail is set at $200 USD.
