Introducing the Converse First-String collaboration with British luxury brand, Hancock. The flawless production features Hancock’s patented rubber bonding process whereby a rubber solution is bonded between two layers of fabric creating a waterproof barrier. We were particularly impressed with the attention to detail seen in the engraved eyelets, embroidered heel stay and siphonia elastic print inner.

The ninth collaborative effort between Missoni and Converse First String. Premium patch worked suede, with an inner lining of custom Missoni mohair in their iconic zig zag pattern. Finished with antique brass hardware, leather laces and a suede toecap all on top of the 1970 Chuck Taylor sole. Subtle and luxurious. Dropping Saturday in limited amounts.
