The more the Converse X Maison Martin Margiela sneakers are worn, the more the overpaint loosens its hold, elegantly cracking to reveal the hidden, bold colour. Original heritage colourways from the Converse archives are slowly revealed through four distinct styles: Amber Glow and True Navy with the Converse All Star Chuck ’70 and Azure Blue and Biking Red with the Converse Jack Purcell. The sneaker also features the discreet yet distinguishable Maison Martin Margiela logo on the tongue, and both silhouettes are accented with painted and non-painted lace options.
Converse First String is a limited edition collection that celebrates craftsmanship, authenticity and collaboration at the highest level. The Converse X Maison Martin Margiela sneaker collection will be available for purchase globally on Friday, May 23rd at Converse San Francisco, Santa Monica and Soho stores, Maison Martin Margiela stores, and at select Converse First String retailers for a suggested retail price of £205 GBP.
