Shoe of the Day at Pitti Uomo Spring 2018: J.W. Anderson’s Converse Chuck Taylor Collab

J.W. Anderson debuted a collaboration with Converse today, shown at the Villa La Pietra in Florence, Italy, during Pitti Uomo. The new partnership saw designer Jonathan Anderson rework Converse’s iconic Chuck Taylor style.

While Anderson also showed new versions of Converse’s Thunderbolt style as well, his Chuck Taylor interpretations take center stage. A particular standout is the tritone colorway, which is finished with a gradient glitter (seen below).

Elsewhere in the collection, Anderson also showed metallic Chuck Taylor styles that had a higher silhouette than usual. He also showed denim and suede versions of the Thunderbolt low-top runners.

Converse has collaborated with luxury brands before, including labels such as Maison Margiela, John Varvatos, Comme des Garcons and Missoni.
