Converse announces the launch of the S13 Missoni for Converse Auckland Racer. This is the latest collaboration with Missoni featuring the Auckland Racer in two new fabrics. These shoes first debuted at the Missoni Men’s SS13 runway show in Milan, Italy. Both shoe designs feature Missoni’s unmistakeable multi-stitch fabric in either a multi-color or grayscale option. Each shoe features a wool/viscose upper, a premium canvas lining and white rubber soles. All shoes will be available starting Friday, March 29 (in limited quantities) at Missoni boutiques and select Converse First String retailers.
MENTORS NOTE: Everyone needs a pair of athletic shoes that don’t… well, look like a pair of athletic shoes. Sometimes you just need to run out the door before Chipotle closes (or am I the only one that does that?) and you don’t want to look like a gym bunny. This is where your Missoni Converse shoes come in. They have the comfort and ease of a regular athletic shoe, but the style and jazz factor of Missoni. Where them with a v-neck t-shirt and a pair of athletic shorts. You’ll achieve the sporty look while still retaining some sort of style dignity.
