John Varvatos x Converse Weapon Mid

John Varvatos could tell you first hand from a childhood in and around the Motor City just how cold it gets in the D, but judging by his collaborations with Converse, you’d think the man grew up in a coal mining town.  The Calvin Klein and Ralph Lauren alum loves to apply a slightly blackened vintage touch to his One Star collabos and this new John Varvatos x Converse Weapon Mid picks a perfect color scheme upon which to add that signature look.  It’s a style Converse kid Wiz Khalifa would find a natural transition from his beloved Chuck Taylor, and you can see more images after the jump below before buying yours at top-notch Converse retailers like Kith.

Sneaker News just showed you the Converse Premium Collection for fall 2012, and within were previews of John Varvatos’ latest efforts for the One Star.  Key among these is a style the likes of which we’ve seen offered by Varvatos on other models, but never quite like this.  The John Varvatos x Converse Chuck Taylor Zip Hi is a black leather look that applies its zipper to the lower ankle collar, which gives you the option to quickly remove the top two eyelets in favor of a more ‘Ox’-leaning All Star.  The black leather is top-notch as always to signal that blackened details merely denote premium vintage quality, and you’ll find them available now at select Converse stores like CNCPTS.

Converse Fall 2012 Premium Collection

converse fall 2012 premium collection 1 570x407 Converse Fall 2012 Premium Collection

Converse got its start one hundred-four and a half years ago, and thanks to their timing, the designs for which they’re best known now serve as standards around which much of modern athletic footwear is based.  Plenty of brands have created their own versions, but there’s still nothing like a fresh pair of Converse Chuck Taylor All Stars or Jack Purcells anywhere else in the industry.  And now that the Converse ♥ Marimekko collection has become as much a regular as John Varvatos’ vintage stylings, not only do you get the genuine article of classic American style, but the designs are pushed over the edge by today’s most creative fashion minds.  Click through to see these as well as the Premium Boot selections and stick with Sneaker News for updates as this fall 2012 capsule is arriving at retailers as we speak.

John Varvatos x Converse All Star Laceless Hi + Sprint Grip Ox

John Varvatos’ collaboration with Converse will remain popular into the forseeable future thanks to subtle variations like these that reflect his signature aesthetic while allowing for multiple degrees of progress.  These new drops pair a couple of Converse All Star Laceless Hi designs cast in canvas with two lowtops done mostly in that same material.  But the overall effect of the Sprint Grip Ox is decidedly different thanks to a leather wrap around the sole and tonal and textural contrasts thanks to suede toes.  Check out all four pairs after the jump and grab yours at finer Converse retailers like Kith.

John Varvatos x Converse JP Pro Leather

John Varvatos’ Converse collaborations are typified by premium quality with a well aged look achieved by blackening key elements.  His latest keeps that signature look to a minimum but points just as strongly to the past by applying muted, almost ‘antiqued’ colors along with the kind of broken-in luxury build that’ll have you thinking “They don’t make ‘em like these any more.”  Luckily, they do, and this new round of John Varvatos x Converse JV Pro Leathers in both heights has the kind of timeless appeal that’ll keep them in your rotation for years to come.  Hopefully the same can be said of the Converse by Varvatos collab, and you can grab its latest product at top-tier shops like CNCPTS.

John Varvatos x Converse Star Player EV Mid

John Varvatos‘ sustained attention over the past couple years has given a nice push to the recently resurrected Converse Star Player.  Varvatos’ latest take on this classic hightop offers an expectedly distressed approach that’s achieved differently than anything else he’s done to date.  These new John Varvatos x Converse Star Player Mids should probably cost a bit more than your average pair because of the extra manhours necessary to build the shoe, tear its branding and overlay asunder, apply blackened antiquing on the sole and dispose of the extra waste.  Either that, or Converse is in possession of the most precisely malfunctioning sewing machines in existence.  In any case, you’re looking at a fresh approach to making things look old and used, something JV’s Converse capsule has utterly mastered.  via Dunk

Converse Spring 2012 Premium Collection

converse spring 2012 premium collection Converse Spring 2012 Premium Collection

One of the key reasons Converse attracts so varied and large a group of collaborative designers, is because their classic models are literally canvases upon which you can apply your own distinctive style.  The Converse Premium Collection for spring 2012 proves that this can be achieved in a number of ways, the most to the letter of which is the application of whimsical prints on the Chuck Taylor All Star in the latest round of Converse ♥ Marimekko releases.  Longtime One Star guest designer John Varvatos adds his own offerings, but as you might expect, they’re crafted in dingy destructed leathers instead of the classic canvas build.  Both of these collabo sets as well as a range of other beloved silhouettes  await your click on the jump below, and you’ll find these in stores at select Converse retailers around the world.
