JW Anderson Puts Some Sparkle On Your Converse

These chucks will make you and your best man friend want to grab a pair...


Converse and JW Anderson debuted their design collaboration today with an unexpected twist on a classic kick.

The new shoes were unveiled at the Florence Pitti Uomo show of the Brit designer.

'From my very first pair, Converse have represented such a radical movement in style and culture. The contrasts and similarities between the world of Converse and the world of JW Anderson creates a space of culture tension that's a dream to play within as a designer,' said designer Jonathan Anderson via press release.


Instead of the classic one colour trainer, these Converse offer some sparkle and edge, and they don't discriminate based on gender.

The unisex shoes come in different styles including a range of metallic colours. For the more staid trainer-wearers among us, they'll also be available in classic navy blue and white with the JW Anderson logo repeated.

There is no set release date yet for the JW Anderson x Converse styles—but watch them come alive in the video below:
