Mo’Wax x Converse Jack Purcell Collection

mowax-x-converse-jack-purcell-collection-22Headed by James Lavelle, Mo’Wax was founded in 1992 and quickly became a melting pot of subcultures and musical style, releasing music from the likes of DJ Shadow, DJ Krush and Blackalicious, while also boasting collaborations with NIGO, Futura 2000, Medicom Toys and more. To celebrate two decades of creativity, Mo’Wax teamed up with Converse to present a remake to Lavelle’s favorite silhouettes, the Converse Jack Purcell. The collection consists of the Ox which boasts a unique white debossed leather upper, and the Mid-Top which features a premium stingray leather upper. Both iterations are made meticulously, despite their minimal makeup. “Build & Destroy” are debossed onto the rubber toecaps with iconic camo screen-print graphics (synonymous to Ben Dury’s signature work) take on the cotton base. Metallic gold logos take on the sockliners and heel stay, while an icy blue outsole rounds out sneakers with a bold finish.mowax-x-converse-jack-purcell-collection-3
