The result of the Converse x JW Anderson collaboration was demonstrated at a show during the Pitti Uomo men's fashion show in Italy. Models at the show of the collection of British designer Jonathan Anderson spring 2018 were shod in Converse. During the collaboration of the two brands, the classic Converse Chuck Taylor high sneakers and Arizona sneakers were modified.
Updated shoe models feature a variety of finishes. The most memorable option is the silver-colored Chuck Taylor sneakers, with a higher top than the classic model, as well as the Chuck Taylor with a two-tone top and metallic sheen. Arizona sneakers come in denim or beige suede tops.
Converse x JW Anderson shoes will go on sale in the fall.
This is not the first time Converse has collaborated with a luxury brand. Prior to this, the brand modernized the appearance of its shoes with brands such as Missoni, Comme des Garçons, John Varvatos and Maison Margiela.
