Sometimes big things come in small packages...
After months of searching for the best in fashion and sneakers, Eureka! The Missoni Auckland Racer Spring/Summer 13 edition. Converse is no stranger to working with Missoni.
This has been a couple years in the making after having success with their hightop Chuck Taylor models. This time they have worked on Converse's Auckland Racer. First debuted in the 70's as converse's answer to the ever changing athletic market trying to keep up with new comers like Nike and Reebok chasing after the leader Adidas. With the innovative minds at both Converse and Missoni they have mixed both high end fashion and vintage athletics to bring to you shoes nothing short of extraordinary.
The moment I opened the box, I was in aw of the attention to detail which is normally lacking in some newer models even if their price tag pushes 200+. The quality of the materials is top notch, along with comfort. Embossed with "Missoni’s iconic multi-stitch fabric with a wool/viscose upper" which is complemented by a white foam midsole with a white rubber outsole. They are a versatile combination to add style for any occasion.
Whether it's walking to your local farmers market, or a stroll to your Ikea ;) these will definitely draw attention and compliments along the way. We gladly grant these a 10 out of 10.
Showing how a high end brand can really influence the urban culture and its surroundings.
