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?
