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.

This upcoming Spring/Summer 2013 season, Missoni goes deeper into the Converse catalog and grabs a hold of the Converse Auckland Racer and reimagines the low-pro running shoe in signature style. Using the multi-stitch fabric from the upcoming Men’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection, Missoni will feature two of these Aucklands in a multi-colored composition and a second in a grey-scale approach. Another look at this upcoming Missoni for Converse effort is just ahead, so give them a look and let us know if you these are better than the darker January 2012 release from earlier this year.

Converse recently remixed the Auckland Racer in much the same way as their Chuck Taylor and Star Player have been meshed-out, but this latest release proves the One Star still has some loyalty to the original.  The Converse Auckland Racer Ox looks like it could be a podium shoe for the US or UK this Olympic summer, its red and navy overlay segments adding a patriotic character to the white ripstop base.  Another way to get at the old school running vibe outside of the more widespread Air Max or New Balance classics, these new Auckland Racer Ox lowtops are available now from Caliroots.

Proving the All-Star brand’s pedigree beyond the foundations of lifestyle silhouettes covered by the Chuck Taylor side of things is the Converse Auckland Racer. The retro runner is coming back out of the woodwork with an updated silhouette, featuring mesh and nylon additions along with a lighter outsole to make its reentry that much more functional. With the Converse Star Play EV also recently taking on the mesh upgrade, is this a theme we will see progress throughout the year or more of a flash-in-the-pan thing for a couple key silhouettes? Stay tuned with Sneaker News to see how that develops, and in the mean time hit the jump with us to check out the three colorways of the Converse Auckland Racer Remix, all of which are available now at Converse online.

There’s a couple of new Missoni collabo pairs on the way for fall, but here’s proof that the Converse Auckland Racer can signal premium quality all on its own.  Two new pairs for spring go with tried and true combinations most strongly correlated with New Balance’s classics lineup: grey and navy suedes on old school runners with a top notch twist.  In the case of these Auckland Runners, the luxurious appeal is driven home by the carmel brown leather lining and tongue tags that seem to be popping up more and more often these days.  Click through to see more from these two different approaches and grab one of them straight from Converse.
