CLOT x Converse First String One Star – Black/Blanc de Blanc ($110)

Continuing with successful collaborations with elite boutiques and brands worldwide, the Converse First String line delivers another One Star model, this time with Edison Chen’s CLOT brand from China. Using simple black and white hairy suede, this colorway draws on the tranquility derived from meditation. Tai Chi symbols and sayings appear on the midsole, as black and white play off of each other on the upper. Furthering the theme, the box lid includes diagrams of Tai Chi movements, and the footbed includes black and white symbols.

Available tomorrow at noon EST in very limited quantities in-store only at our Jersey City location.

Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star ’70 Hi VNTG – Midnight Navy ($85)

Using 14 oz. navy canvas for the upper and a higher midsole, the model also grafts in an Ortholite footbed for increased cushioning.
