Taking further notes from the UK’s underground street culture and vivid landscapes, each sneaker fuses the worlds of basketball, brutalist architecture and natural environments, with fine tailoring and precise construction. Arriving in a rugged black nylon, each sneaker is completed with a reflective zig-zag stitching all on a thick rubber outsole.
The latest all-black Converse x A-COLD-WALL* Chuck Taylor Lugged sneaker is set to drop on October 8 via the Converse webstore, retailing from $160 USD.
