One of the key reasons Converse attracts so varied and large a group of collaborative designers, is because their classic models are literally canvases upon which you can apply your own distinctive style. The Converse Premium Collection for spring 2012 proves that this can be achieved in a number of ways, the most to the letter of which is the application of whimsical prints on the Chuck Taylor All Star in the latest round of Converse ♥ Marimekko releases. Longtime One Star guest designer John Varvatos adds his own offerings, but as you might expect, they’re crafted in dingy destructed leathers instead of the classic canvas build. Both of these collabo sets as well as a range of other beloved silhouettes await your click on the jump below, and you’ll find these in stores at select Converse retailers around the world.
the first pair with the distressed look are nice in my opinion....i agree with bob though... the rest are rediculous
These are crap. Is this the direction Converse is going for their "Premium" line? Really? A lot of these look like they belong to a homeless man.
