Union x Converse First String 1970s Chuck Taylor All Star Collection

union-converse-1970s-chuck-taylor-all-star-collection-1For the first time ever, California retailer Union teams with the iconic Converse brand to release a two-part collection of First String 1970s Chuck Taylor All Stars. Each drop is constructed with a premium felted wool exterior and lined with soft sheep’s leather to turn an otherwise summery sneaker into a fully winterized piece of footwear. While the white version features emerald stitching and a neon yellow outsole, the blue pair goes tonal with its stitch detail to match a vibrantly red outsole. Both models will also come with an alternate set of laces to match its outsole color. The Union x Converse 1970s Chuck Taylor All Star Collection is currently available in-store at the retailer’s Los Angeles location

Kenzo x Vans ‘Stripes’

Following up on a set of co-branded Eras, KENZO and Vans are embarking on yet another joint venture, this time on a trio of Authentic styles. The classic Vans model comes in a trio of striped colorways — brown and yellow, blue and yellow plus green and yellow variations — each featuring white painted eyelets and laces, as well as a white rubber midsole with contrast foxing stripe. A double-branded Vans and KENZO insole completes the details. The kicks will be made available for both men and women, dropping at select retailers starting in August…Ive also just bought the mens collection for SS13 and know there will be a drop in November which will be the best yet!!
