Powerful purveyor of premium sportswear-inspired goods and long-time Kanye West affiliate Don C is no newcomer to collaboration, having used his recognizable touch to put a heritage-inspired spin on the goods of many different companies via his Just Don brand. Now, the designer is taking on a late ’80s Converse classic: the ultra-high top ERX — a shoe made famous by none other than Magic Johnson — as he’s releasing a premium lifestyle edition of the classic silhouette along with a colorful collection of co-branded apparel. The shoe’s heavily paneled upper is dressed in a white pony hair, complete with a cheetah-print chevron, a gold Converse star, and a colorful “DONS” logo — a clever take on the classic Cons graphic. Don’s high-end retro sportswear aesthetic is evident through the apparel in the collection as well, which features luxurious materials like terry cloth, thick cotton, and premium nylon, and is embellished with chenille patches, embroidered hits, bold prints, and gold zippers. Check out the full collection below, and head over to the Just Don webstore to shop the pieces now — the shoes retail for $150, while the rest of the collection ranges from $60-$250. You can also expect a full global release on November 20th.
