Following the TURBODRK and TURBOWPN, Rick Owens DRKSHDW and Converse have come together once again for the DRKSTAR. Getting a closer look at the take on the classic Chuck Taylor 70, we get a better idea of the inflated proportions that make up the design from Rick Owens.

Building on his initial subversive interpretation, the DRKSTAR features carefully exaggerated design articulations. Coming in Hi and Ox cuts, the shoe features a dimensionalized rounded toe cap paired with heavy-weight 18 oz cotton twill upper constructions. Additional detailing comes in the form of extended tongues, nuanced stitching, badge branding and printed insoles. Elevating the shoe are segmented and stacked sole units that carry Rick Owens’ distinct modernist minimalism and contemporary luxury design outlook.

Accompanying the DRKSTAR are matching caps marked with logos and backpack with two-zip closures and two hook and loop side pockets.

Priced at $165 and $170 USD, the Rick Owens DRKSHDW x Converse DRKSTAR Hi and Ox will be available globally via Converse and Rick Owens, and at select retailers.
