Missoni for Converse Inspires Missoni Spring 2013
Need your Missoni runway kick? Feel it through your feet. On the heels of their latest limited edition Missoni x Converse debut, we couldn’t help but notice the similarities between the Missoni Spring 2013 runway show and the new Converse sneaker styles. Check out the runway looks and their tennis shoe-spiration counterparts after the jump.
Inspired by the jogging trend that dominated the 1970s, Missoni and Converse have collaborated again to create some super adorable patterned sneakers. With every shoe unique to another, each Converse x Missoni shoe is covered with the signature Missoni fabric creating hundreds of different patterned tennis shoes (you can even tie them 17 ways).
To be launched this Friday on September 28th in Paris, the new collaboration will be available to purchase exclusively at the French boutique colette (remember that fashion forward store?). Now, it’s not a 52 story house or a pair of short shorts, but flip through the rest of the collection below and try to decide which zig-zag sneaks you’ll be rocking this fall. Hopefully you can find a friend to fly out to Paris to snag you a pair for yourself.
These elongated stripes make us feel long and lean, and the soft pink tones work from season to season.
