Must-Have: Missoni for Converse Chuck Taylor

Missoni boutique shares the arrival of Missoni for Converse Chuck Taylor All Star shoe for Fall 2011. This new edition of the highly sought-after collaboration features Missoni’s signature space-dyed knit using an Autumn-ready color palette.

One of the world’s most original and timeless designs, the Chuck Taylor All Star shoe was again the muse for Missoni. Using a silhouette of the shoe Converse originally created for the United States military in the 1960s, Missoni adds a rich, muted tone, woolen, space-dyed knit to the shoe’s upper in hues of brown, tan, cream, black and orange. Soft, black leather detailing on the tongue, heel pull-tab and lining along with black laces and leather toe caps round out the design and give the shoe a rich and luxurious look and feel. The fifth collaborative effort between the two brands, the new shoe rounds out the two offerings for Fall 2011.

Converse First String is a limited-edition collection that celebrates craftsmanship, authenticity and collaboration at the highest level. The Missoni for Converse Chuck Taylor All Star shoes are now available at Missoni Boutique in limited quantities and unisex men’s sizes 3 – 13.
