The Missoni x Converse Auckland Racer is back, and this time the sneaker is flexing a bit more in terms of the blocking options. The two new pairs that we’ve spotted both have a busier look than that brown version that got the model going. Does this runner have potential to end up as heralded as the various Chuck Taylor All-Star releases from the Missoni x Converse team up? Let us know what you think after you peep the premium pairs post-jump. And if you don’t want to wait till the US shops get theirs, you can grab either one now from the folks at Tres Bien.

converse first string and premium holiday 2012 1 570x407 Converse First String + Premium Holiday 2012 Collection

Converse First String is potentially the breakout division of the year across all major sneaker brands, having scored some superb collaborations to bolster the in-house efforts.  These have come on several different silhouettes with more variety being added with some degree fo regularity, but you’ll never get away from the versatility and everyman appeal of the classic Chuck Taylor.  The new Converse Chuck Taylor Bosey (including the brand new lowtop version) highlights the Holiday 2012 First String lineup, and is joined by Premium level renditions on the All Star (both ‘Post’ and ‘Glitz’ variants), as well as a couple of top-notch OGs in their own right in the Jack Purcell and Auckland Racer.  Available now at select retailers, you can see all six styles in more images after the jump.

Aloha Rag x Converse AR SRPLS Label

aloha rag x converse ar srpls label Aloha Rag x Converse AR SRPLS Label

Aloha Rag has authored two different zippered Jack Purcell collaborations with Converse, and today we see the third offer two models at once.  The A.R. SRPLS x Converse Pro Leather we showed you back in February is joined by a new Auckland Racer, both in top quality leathers.  The Pro Leather is vaguely reminiscent of what you’d expect from a Supreme x Nike SB Dunk High x Blazer mashup (interesting timing on the heels of the Stussy edition), and the Auckland Racer wins the novelty contest with a rustic red makeup whose African goat build is the only one we’ve seen of its kind.  That second silo will also be online on Saturday, but for pre-orders only (December ship date) and you can see both in detail after the jump.

Even though we’re in a time of unprecedented novelty and recombination, our culture is dependent upon consistency as a sign of any number of positive traits.  That’s why you have a relatively recent partnership like the Undefeated x Converse for Foot Locker triumvirate opting for a tagline like ‘Born Not Made’, in reference to the fact that these long-established pillars of the sneaker community are a natural pairing.  Their footwear collection is accordingly filled with classic silhouettes and timeless colorways, like the new quartet of UNDFTD x Converse Star Player, Auckland Racers and Dr. Js, and these latest drops are out now at Undefeated‘s web store and chapter locations.
