Missoni x Converse Makes Sneakers Chic
By Rebekah Meiser, November 10th, 2010
Imagine two unrelated and timeless brands combining their most symbolic elements. Well, this fantasy scenario comes alive in the Missoni for the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star line. Converse’s classic high tops combined with Missoni’s signature prints lead to a shoe collection that perfectly exemplifies the concept of functional fashion. The line consists of two versions of the Chuck Taylor All Star shoe, one with the trade zig-zag pattern and the other with flaming and neutral stitches.
And for those who admire Missoni’s recognizable and most beloved geometric patterns, but can’t afford both a zig and a zag from this lux brand, your Missoni moment has arrived. The shoes launched in early April and retail for $200. Whether these shoes are worn with jeans and a leather jacket or a printed sweater dress, this line is as versatile as it is affordable.
