After releasing exclusively at the JW Anderson web store last month, the designer’s Run Star Hike collaboration with Converse is set to get a global release. The hiking boot-inspired take on the Chuck Taylor is set to drop in a white colorway, with its canvas upper offset by blue and gum detailing along the outsole.

While the upper from the Chuck Taylor remains intact, other features of the sneaker include a cushioned and oversized EVA midsole as well as a rubber heel wrap complete with star branding. Speaking about the silhouette, Anderson explained that “contrasting proportions have always been part of my design aesthetic. When I approached this latest Converse, I was looking to re-create the same aesthetic by pairing the sole of a Run Star with the classic Chuck Taylor to emphasize the proportions.”

The JW Anderson x Converse Run Star Hike is set to hit the Converse web store and other select retailers like HBX February 12.
