Andrew Richardson‘s Richardson brand has keyed in on rolling out a barrage of new collaborations throughout the Fall/Winter season alongside brands like New Era, Mum.Vs.Cold and Alien Labs. And to continue its partnerships streak, it has linked up with Converse Addict to forge an understated Jack Purcell makeup that’s built to combat inclement weather conditions.

Understated is arguably the best adjective to describe this new take of the lifestyle silhouette as it is designed with a simple yin-and-yang palette. Suede-infused side panels are enhanced with GORE-TEX lining to repel the harsher winter weather and come accented with a Richardson stamp on the lateral mid-foot and a white rubber toe cap. Black paracord shoe strings are marked with white stripes, and more Richardson branding is printed across the tongues. Inside the shoes, you’ll find more playfully styled patterns as Christmas-friendly green and white stripes adorn the entire footbeds. The bottom section — which is predominantly covered in white — is engineered with Vibram soles for premium comfort and durability.

Parties who are interested in copping can find these releasing Exclusively at the Richardson Tokyo store, the Richardson web shop and Converse Addict retailers. Retail is set at ¥30,800 (approx. $270 USD).
