Converse x Comme des Garçons PLAY Collection

Today Converse launched their Comme des Garçons PLAY collaboration collection globally. The designer label created four styles of the iconic Converse pro leather sneakers which debut in 1976 as a performance basketball shoe. Comme des Garçons PLAY is a casual street-wear-influenced line from the Avant-garde Japanese label founded by Rei Kawakubo.

Kawakubo gave the classic pro leather sneakers a updated look and designed the collection with PLAY'S signature playful heart with eyes logo. I like the quirkiness of these sneakers which will add a fun touch to dresses & minis for the summer. 

The Comme des Garçons PLAY for Converse Pro leather sneakers is available in milk and black mid & Ox silhouettes. Each style will be available on Dover Street Market's website and at the Comme des Garçons NYC store starting today and in Paris & London on June 1st. On June 21st, the sneakers with hit Tokyo and Asia. The pro leather sneakers retail at $130-140. What do you think of the collection?
