There are plenty of anniversaries and flashbulb memories to celebrate with the London Olympic Games coming up this summer, and while most of the sneakerhead set will focus in on the recent past (perhaps most notably the 20th anniversary of the Dream Team), let’s not forget that the modern Olympiad has been around for over a century.  About halfway back to the 1896 Athens Games, you’ll find that the last time the Olympics were in LDN, Ottavio Missoni debuted the original ‘Venjulia’ tracksuit on the Italian national team.  Missoni met his future wife at Wembley that year, so their marriage and subsequent launch of his namesake fashion label make the tie-in with the upcoming London event all the more special.  The Missoni x Converse Auckland Racer brings us closer to the current day with its unmistakable woven upper redefining this timeless running silhouette while their Horween Chromexcel Pro Leather lowtops take the ongoing collaboration in a new direction with unlimited potential.  Click through for shots of both pairs and check back with Sneaker News for updates in advance of the October release date.  via SlamXHype

the racers give a mature appeal. Shame tho, I remember when these were being discussed months ago, and we have to wait until October 2012 for a super limited release?!
