More than just Chucks
These New Sneakers from Converse & JW Anderson Are like Sweaters for Your Feet
Designer JW Anderson has definitely had his share of memorable collections and collabs, even just with Converse and Uniqlo. But these Chuck Taylor hi-tops, with their color-blocked and felted uppers, hit a more timeless note than a few trendy items we’ve seen lately.
These sneakers feature the standard shape and fit of the All-Stars we know and love, but in a thick felt fabric that’s sure to keep your toes cozy as temperatures dip. Find yours in a variety of colorways including orange and green (pictured here), pink and lime, gray melange and olive green (they’re calling it bamboo).
But whatever you do, don’t sleep on these; JW Anderson’s collaborations with Converse tend to sell quick, and they go for a lot more than list price once sneaker-heads and re-sellers get ahold of them.
