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.

Missoni x Converse – 2012 Preview

missoni converse chuck taylor all star 1 570x378 Missoni x Converse   2012 Preview

Missoni might very well be the world’s best known manufacturer of luxury knitwear, and they’ve managed to extend their reach in recent years will well-placed collaborative releases from a variety of partners.  The one that carries the most weight around these parts is the Italian fashion label’s ongoing tag team with Converse that’s produced some of the more unique looks in recent memory.  The Missoni x Converse Chuck Taylor All Star will return later this year in a fairly dark construction reminiscent of the Auckland Racer we previewed not too long ago, and the absence of the Pro Leathers we showed you at the same time suggests there could be even more in store for 2012.  Click through to see how leather details including the signature toecap make the Chucks feel extra special and stick with Sneaker News for updates on their release.  via Tres Bien

Missoni x Converse Auckland Racer + Pro Leather AW

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

Missoni x Converse Auckland Racer

Missoni already used Converse’s most popular model in a series of collaborations over the past couple years, so for their latest project, the Italian fashion house turned to a considerably more obscure silhouette.  Just be honest for a second: do you own a pair of Converse Auckland Racers yet?  This insane new Missoni-designed pair might change that answer to yes, this 1970s runner having never looked crazier than these two pairs in its five decades of existence.  The material on these looks highly texturized, which leads us to believe they wouldn’t be all that great for actual running purposes, but for running the streets, there’s not a whole lot out there that’ll draw double-takes like these babies.  Click through to see more angles and stick with Sneaker News for word on a possible retail release (though unfortunately, it seems unlikely as of this writing).
