First thing’s first: the Converse Malden Racer isn’t a new silhouette. While this upcoming pair might be the first time that they’re set to arrive under the CONS subdivision, this is far from the maiden Malden. With that being said, the 2014 entry for the Auckland Racer relative makes some departures in terms of blocking, with a setup that breaks the toe apart from the rest of the shoes in terms of shades used. If you’re wondering about the etymology of this particular shoe, remember that Malden, MA was where the All-Star brand got its start back in 1908.
