Converse just dropped an iridescent new line that you’re going to want immediately
Get a first look at the festival-worthy footwear collection.
If you're on the hunt for a truly head-turning pair of new kicks, look no further. Cult-favourite skatewear brand Converse has just dropped a line of shiny new shoes that are guaranteed to add a spring to your step.
The new line sees the iconic Chuck 70 silhouette reimagined in two distinctive new colourways. Both styles feature a translucent mesh-like upper, with the first reflecting shades of pinks, purples and blues. The second pair is equally vibrant, arriving in hues of greens and blues.
The shiny panelling runs all the way up the tongue of each design, adding to the shine. Each iteration also sports the usual iconic white rubber midsole, signature star branding and clean, white laces of the original model.
Converse is no stranger to bold footwear lines. The brand recently announced a rainbow-inspired Pride capsule and has previously dropped both a tie-dye range and a glittery collaboration with JW Anderson.
When and where can you shop the new line?
The iridescent new collection has already dropped in select retailers in the US, though there is no word yet on an Australian release date. We can expect that they'll land first on the Converse site and then potentially become available through usual retailers like Platypus Shoes and Rebel Sport. The delay will give you a chance to save your pennies though, with the new designs currently retailing for US$95.
In other sneaker news, there are plenty of new collections to pick from if you're after some truly standout footwear. Sportswear giant Nike recently released its own iridescent collection as well as a neon collection with Tokyo-based label Atmos.
Meanwhile, rival label PUMA has turned a hand at a range of quirky collections. Relive your childhood with its second Barbie collaboration or save your cash for the Karl Lagerfeld collaboration that's set to drop in the next few days.
