CONVERSE ENGINEERED GARMENTS EXPLORATION

Inspired by Legacy, Constructed for the Future

Daiki Suzuki made his name in the fashion by mining the intersection of classic Americana, Japanese sensibilities and modern tailoring. With his label Engineered Garments, the Japanese-born, NYC-based designer has injected new life into outdoor, military and sporting silhouettes, crafting an intricately-detailed take on menswear. Suzuki has done the same with this special edition Converse One Star silhouette, reviving four distinct eras and reimagining four logo designs. Clad in military-inspired tones and crafted in premium leather, the Engineered Garments’ One Star shoe is a utilitarian update of this street and skate classic.

 

 

Features:

● Crafted with premium leather throughout for an understated luxe feel

● Available in four military-inspired colorways

● Sleek monochromatic laces

● Engineered Garment logo discreetly featured on innersole

● Features four distinct versions of the One Star logo from past to present

● Each colorway features a different version of the One Star logo

 

The Engineered Garments’ One Star sneaker will be available exclusively at Shelflife stores from 2 November 2017.
