When you’ve got a hundred years of experience in the shoe game like Converse, you could fill at least a book or two. Now, imagine there was a book for each year, how would you fill them? How about with a pair of shoes — keep it simple, silly.
This new release from the One Star is anything but simple: an elaborate mockup of a century’s worth of volumes that placed together reveal a multicoloured Converse logo along the bottom of the spines. Upon further inspection, the “books” are actually rectangular slabs of cardboard with a circle cut into the middle, facilitating the placement of a pair of off-white Chuck Taylor All Stars. A very clever way of celebrating their centinneal, we can’t wait to see what Converse has in store(s) next.
These surfaced on the DesignBoom blog which doesn’t traditionally showcase footwear, so we’ll bring you more pics and the release date once it leaks from Converse.
