Once again Missoni teamed up with Converse, and taken to the iconic Chuck Taylor All Star silhouette, donning them with their signature raschel, and zig-zag knit fabrics. The first shoe consists of a rich Crown Blue Raschel Knit upper, with the almost horizontal zig-zag pattern highlighted with hues of blue, navy, and white. The rest of the shoes upper features an array tonal leather details on the tongue, toecap, heel tab and lining, that result in yet another highly recognizable and unique rendition of the Chuck Taylor.
The second and third shoes are donned with Missoni’s most well known of patterns, the zig-zag knit, with the Mission White colourway featuring hues of Cream, Gold, Silver, and White, and the Winter Green colourway featuring hues of Cream, Gold, Silver, and Teal. Both zig-zag colourways feature leather detailing on the tongue, heel tab, lining, and midsole giving the shoe a rich and luxurious look and feel. All three silhouettes come with accenting laces, and feature Converse’ removable cushioned innersole, and the final touch of embossed player details on the tongues inner, a definite throwback to origins of the Chuck Taylor silhouette.
