Converse X SNS

Sneakersnstuff is the latest sneaker boutique to interpret Converse One Star

Johannesburg, 11th April 2018 – The Converse One Star continues to show up across global street culture, with celebrated sneaker boutique Sneakersnstuff creating a limited-edition capsule in collaboration with Converse.

 

The One Star take on the military print comes to life through texture and color. Translating a traditionally graphic application into a unique patchwork of suede and leather, Converse and SNS focused on the classic “canteen” palette.

The sneaker’s foxing tape features a military laundry tag and heel stay displays a debossed SNS logo. Additional features include goat leather lining, vintage cotton laces, co-branded sock liners, and the silhouette’s iconic star in Nappa leather.

“Camo has always played an important role in fashion and streetwear,” said Erik Fagerlind co-founder of Sneakersnstuff. “We wanted to elevate the print by stitching leather together in a slow, unnatural process. We do not believe in taking shortcuts. This is not fast fashion. The collection is thorough, genuine and displays a high level of craftsmanship.”

The One Star x Sneakersnstuff collaboration will be available starting April 12th 2018, exclusively at Shelflife stores.
