Why you’re going to want the new PLEASURES x Converse sneakers
See the collaborative collection bringing punk-rock back.
It's been a little while since we've seen a major drop from Converse, but it seems that the label was simply biding its time. Its latest creation has just been revealed and this one's a doozy. Working in collaboration with LA-based streetwear brand PLEASURES, Converse is taking us back to the 70s with a pair of punk-rock kicks that you're going to want immediately.
Release date: 21 November (US)
Where to buy: The Converse US site, though we're hoping to see them on the Australian version of the site too.
Dropping onto the US Converse site from today, the new sneakers are a reimagining of Converse's classic Pro Leather silhouette. This time around, the kicks have been decked out in a black soft leather upper and overlayed with translucent plastic.
Stark white punky graphics decorate the shoe, with text such as "PANIC" and "Stop Lying To Yourself" printed on the medial and lateral sides respectively. The rebellious revamp also sees a doubled-up midsole, black laces and "PLEASURES NOW" text on the heel tab.
While there's no word yet on an Aussie release date, we're hoping to see the collaborative effort land on the Australian Converse site. Typically, the US gets new sneaker releases up to a week or two before we do, so keep your eyes peeled in the coming weeks.
