Pop Trading Company Reworks the Converse CONS Jack Purcell Pro Hi and Ox
Dressing the skate sneakers in ’90s-inspired colorways.
Amsterdam-based Pop Trading Company has followed up its Camper collaboration with a new release of footwear. This time working with Converse CONS, the project builds on a five year relationship, which has culminated with their first joint capsule together.
For the collaboration, Pop Trading Company has used the same ’90s-inspired color palette as it did for its Spring/Summer 2020 collection on the Jack Purcell Pro Hi and Ox silhouettes. Both silhouettes feature a range of staple skate features, as well as design elements including rubber taping which acts as both the “Ollie Patch” and as a design reference to Pop’s aesthetic.
The Jack Purcell Pro Hi is dressed in a mixture of blue and yellow, while Pop has covered the Ox in an “Egret/Red” colorway. Both designs are finished with Pop Trading Company branding on the toe and heel.
Take a look at the two silhouettes above. The collaboration will release exclusively via the Pop web store and Amsterdam flagship on June 18, before arriving at select stockists including END. the following day. All of the proceeds from the first 24 hours will be donated to Kick Out Zwarte Piet, an organization that fights racism and specifically the deeply racist “Zwarte Piet” tradition in the Netherlands.
