Daiki Suzuki’s Engineered Garments has delivered quality clothing and accessories since 1999. Converse teams with the Japanese label for a collection of three monochrome First String One Star sneakers, each of which bears a unique logo from the Converse archives. Pairs hit the shelves in black, white, and olive with high grade leather across the upper, on the tongue, and inside the shoe.  Subtle Engineered Garments branding appears on the footbeds of each pair.

London’s Footpatrol, a premier destination for sneakers since 2002, collaborates with Converse First String on a “Jewels of Soho” One Star and coach’s jacket. Named for the shop nestled into the Soho neighborhood in LDN, this tan suede One Star is full of details like a jeweled midfoot star, laces that say “The Devil is in the Details,” Footpatrol stitching on the heel, and subtle branding on the tongue, footbeds, and outsole. A coach’s jacket ($120) accompanies the shoe in the same tan hue with subtle grosgrain heel tape at the collar and tonal stitching throughout with a large gas mask logo on the back incorporating both brands’ logos.

Converse First String, after recent collaborations with both UNDFTD and Neighborhood, offers three colors of the Chuck ’70 with Carhartt WIP. Each pair has triple-stiching workwear details on the eye roll, heel counter, and forefoot, along with vintage metal eyelets and red bar foxing on the midsole. Rugged duck canvas makes up the brown and natural models, while ripstop appears on the tiger camo option.

All 3 styles will be available (in VERY limited quantities) tonight at midnight EST online at PackerShoes.com
