Converse x Missoni
Chuck Taylor All Star
It is finally beginning to feel like Spring in NYC. To celebrate I am sharing a recent splurge – these Hi-Top Chuck Taylors from the latest Converse x Missoni collaboration. I am obsessing over the green/purple/black Missoni knit and white leather detailing that is perfect for pairing with a pair of denim cutoffs or white shorts. You could also go crazy and wear them with anything that will please your color blocking/print mixing heart. These sneakers are hard to find but I was able to order a pair from ALOHA RAG (click here to find other retailers). They shipped from Hawaii and arrived at my doorstep within a few days just in time for my trip to Florida last month. I could not wait to try them on and was pleasantly surprised that these luxe Converse kicks have a padded insole that make them a lot more comfortable than their more moderately priced classics (I learned that my other Chuck’s were not made for walking the hard way). I put them to the test and survived a full day at Magic Kingdom wearing them, although probably not the best idea if I wanted to keep them clean.
Are there any sneaker fiends in the building? Share in a comment below.
