The Boston-based brand returns to the helm for a follow up collaborative capsule with Converse, joining forces once again for a limited edition capsule complete with a 3-piece apparel story.  After breathing new life into the CT '70 in 2015 with the embroidered black and white releases, the second iteration of this partnership continues where it left off.

Centering around the same art inspired elements, the elevated street couture brand adds their signature meticulously embroidered detail on two iconic Converse silhouettes, the Pro Leather and Chuck '70 Hi.   Featuring splashes of paint, each piece looks to be randomly placed but has been carefully yet intently manipulated adding a hand-sewn silk embroidered finish.

Closer inspection reveals a multitude of details boasting a rich balance of colors and textures both on the apparel and footwear range. Debossed heel side logos, premium nubuck suede, heavy gauge canvas, speckled midsole and embroidered logo patches add finishing touches to the release.

A bold new creation from Tyler the Creator and Converse, the Gianno silhouette is the latest to enter the GOLF le FLEUR* line-up. For many, anything outside of the Chuck Taylor All-Star does not look outwardly 'Converse', however, much of Converse's DNA and heritage was drawn upon to create the all-new Gianno. Drawing inspiration from Hiking, Skateboarding, BMX, and Basketball, the Gianno's chunky profile and outsole were designed for more than just aesthetics.

Seen here in two new colors - a washed-pastel Lavender purple, as well as a stark Evergreen, the GOLF Gianno sits atop a chunky off-white rubber outsole, with lots of tread throughout. An almost entirely suede upper on the Gianno sees a white gridded rubber panel on the heel, as well as supporting eye-stay straps securing the unique lacing system. The tonal sneakers are finished off with hits of reflective 3M piping throughout, and the GOLF le FLEUR* flower logo on the side panel, tongue, and on the insole.

Release Info: The Converse x GOLF le FLEUR* Gianno Suede releases 10:00AM (PST) - Oct 15th. 

Sizing: Men's Sizing 7 - 12 US

Price: $160 CAD
