Manhattan clothiers Barneys New York have seen their fair share of exclusive sneaker releases over the years, a range that can be best typified with the phrase ‘lifestyle sneakers’. But let’s not forget that the kinds of styles we default to today are just the ones that dominated athletic performance in years gone by, and perhaps no single model has adapted to that transition better than the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star. Barneys just started selling these perforated leather Chuck lowtops that are so (much more) breathable (than the previous Barneys Chucks) you’ll be able to see your socks through the heavily ventilated design. Click through for closer views at the cream, black and white pairs and pick these up directly from the Barneys e-store.
