Rick Owens And Converse Welcome Washed Canvas To The DBL DRKSHDW

Rick Owens And Converse Welcome Washed Canvas To The DBL DRKSHDW

The partnership between Rick Owens and Converse is truly a two way street. On the company’s end, looping in Owens’ design principles brings igh-fashion legitimacy to their historic product line. For Owens, it presents a more cost-minded and less niche platform to express his one of a kind concepts. Arguably no offering spotlights that as well as the Converse DBL DRKSHDW, reorienting materially for its latest “Washed Tan” colorway.

Compositionally, the “DBL” subtitle provides the centerpiece of this model, the literally “doubled” sole unit that turns the once-basketball shoe into a true platform sneaker. Other pieces that showcase crop out throughout the profile, from the exaggerated tongue and its raw hem edge to the newly layered toe-box. While the structure of the silhouette remains eye-catching here, the real novel aspect is the colorway, taking to tan tonality on the canvas upper. Selected spots vary in brightness and texture to imbue a washed-out atmosphere, adding grounded appeal to a model that’s anything but.

The Converse DBL DRKSHDW “Washed Tan” arrives on June 11th with an additional new colorway coming alongside. A $180 retail price is confirmed.

For another boisterous design, take a look our latest on the ANTA KAI 1, including the ANTA KAI 1 “Chief Hela” that Irving rocked for multiple games of the WCF.
