John Varvatos x Converse Pro Leather Mid – Spring 2012

November 25th, 2011 by | 2 comments

john varvatos x converse pro leather mid spring 2012 1 John Varvatos x Converse Pro Leather Mid   Spring 2012

When a sneaker company reigns in a hot designer for an indefinite period of time, it’s always interesting to see that collaborator carve out their own niche within the greater image of the brand. We’ve seen guys like Jeremy Scott and Yohji Yamamoto do this over at adidas, and John Varvatos has definitely been on a similar path during his time with Converse. Often applying a distressed look to the All-Star brand classics, the JV collection has also upheld a standard of premium materials. This Spring 2012 release sees both those tactics yet again, with the Converse Pro Leather Mid getting a beautiful leather in opposing black and red colors, with a crinkled texture that shows off the top-notch construction. Get a full look at these pairs after the jump and be on the lookout for them come next year. via FreshNGood

John Varvatos x Converse Star Classic – Antique White

converse star classic premium white beige navy e John Varvatos x Converse Star Classic   Antique White

Nike Sportswear wasn’t using the name for any currently active releases, so why not share it with another of Nike, Inc’s brands?  The latest Converse by John Varvatos release is the same as the last one, a new pair of Converse Star Classics that manage to stray from Varvatos’ formula for the pre-blackened vintage look.  Combining Antique White tumbled leather with tan and navy blue suedes absolutely does the trick in terms of getting that old school look, though, and these certainly give the other two pairs we showed you last week a run for their money.  Check them out in more photos after the jump, then grab a pair directly from Converse.

John Varvatos x Converse Star Classic Premium

converse star classic premium beige 03 summary John Varvatos x Converse Star Classic Premium

Sneaker News recently showed you that Converse was bringing back one of the rarer models from its archives for the holiday season, so what’ll happen when John Varvatos applies his signature touch to them?  Probably not exactly what you were expecting, as the John Varvatos x Converse Star Classic doesn’t feature the designer’s signature blackened vintage look.  This old school lowtop has all the classic charm it needs built right in, so Varvatos instead applied a couple shades of premium suede to give these a top tier twist so that you can break them in for yourself.  Click through to see navy blue and tan pairs in more detail, then get yours straight from Converse.

John Varvatos x Converse Chuck Taylor All Star ‘Snakeskin Leather’

When it comes to Converse collaborations, John Varvatos is indeed a star player, but that doesn’t mean all of his releases should come on the silhouette with that name.  In fact, if there were a One Star silo Varvatos is most strongly associated with, it’d have to be the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star hightop he’s done in so many different variations.  This latest is done in the same snakeskin leather we saw on a pair of Star Player EVs last week, the higher cut only serving to make them more eye-catching.  You’ll see more images after the jump and then look for yours at the Converse e-store.

It’s been nearly two months since Sneaker News has profiled a new Converse by John Varvatos design, but with the biggest shopping season of the year at our doorstep, a series of new drops is only to be expected.  Thankfully, this new John Varvatos x Converse Star Player EV offers a new twist on the designer’s signature vintage look, this snakeskin leather edition among the more outlandish materials Varvatos has used during his long-lived tag team with the One Star.  Their sheen is almost that of a pewter, which compliments the blackened sole quite nicely, and you can see more images after the jump before you pick up a pair directly from Converse.

John Varvatos x Converse Star Player Mid – Black – White

He was involved in the plot of HBO’s How to Make it in America, but perhaps John Varvatos deserves a show of his own longer than just a single season.  He’s proven over the last decade that both his work and Converse’s classic models have a timeless appeal, and shoppers who frequent high-end department stores will be psyched when they see these at stores like Nordstrom in the near future.  The John Varvatos x Converse Star Player Mid applies Varvatos’ signature dirty vintage style to a black leather silhouette that’s been distressed just enough that you can tell the upper is cast in a premium leather.  Click though to see more angles and pick these up from a One Star retailer like RMKStore.

John Varvatos is among the sneaker industry’s longest running collaborators, his work with Converse outdating almost all of the ongoing tag-team efforts you see today.  And it certainly doesn’t hurt to have longevity built right into the base models, so you can expect the Converse by John Varvatos line to continue for years to come.  But before we get ahead of ourselves, how about a preview of the fall 2011 collection, a set that includes classic, Double Zip and Multi-Eye takes on the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star.  The Star Player and Pro Leather are also along for the ride, though the unique boot-slash-sneaker the Sprint Skidgrip might steal some of their shine.  Click through to see the entire collection, and with the fashion world tending to equate ‘fall’ with Q3, you can expect these at higher-end retailers shortly.
