Continuing to celebrate the 100th birthday of the iconic Chuck Taylor All Star sneaker, Converse connects with FRAPBOIS and Porter for two new takes on the classic shoe.

For the team-up pair, navy blue and white adorn the All Star 100’s exterior; a unique polka dot and “wave pattern design” add some originality to the piece as well. This new iteration of the All Star doesn’t mess with the original formula too much, but its look stands out just enough to make it a Converse enthusiast’s must-have.

Concerning Converse’s joint effort alongside Porter, Cordura fabric is utilized to give the shoe a premium, high-end build that boasts a “glossy” quality. Adorned with a branded “Porter” tag, the collaborative shoe follows the darker-toned navy blue colorway of the previous FRAPBOIS collaboration; eschewing the more playful look of the aforementioned sneaker, Porter and Converse go for a straightforward, clean slate on the outside of their creation.

You can take a look at Converse’s latest pair of All Star collaborations above, and head on over to the brand’s official website to find out how you can pick up your own pair. This past summer, Converse and GORE-TEX also delivered their own tribute to the All Star.

Previously, Porter teamed up with WTAPS to produce a range of military-inspired bag options.
