When it comes to icons of cuteness, few can compete with Hello Kitty. The Japanese brand produced by parent company Sanrio is loved across the world by everyone from toddlers to grandparents, famous for its adorable Hello Kitty character, who has made it onto everything from her own animated cartoon series to toasters.
Sneakers are certainly no exception, and now there’s an all-new set of footwear for fans to get excited about. Hello Kitty and Converse are teaming up this summer for an ultracute collection of the Chuck Taylor All Star and One Star.
The two timeless brands unite for the playful sneaker collectio, which features six styles. Each is just as cute as the next, but what will likely become the biggest hit of the collection is the pink suede Chuck Taylor Hi that features Hello Kitty on the heel with her hands perched on the midsole in a 3-D treatment.
A second Chuck Taylor Hi has her accompanied by a few of her friends, while a low-top Chuck features a black canvas upper with Hello Kitty’s face in an allover print.
The One Star is presented in three editions, one with Hello Kitty peeking through the shoe’s signature star logo and the others in black and pink suede with her bow above the star and herself on the heels.
The sneakers will release alongside matching apparel and accessories from the two brands.
In unisex sizing for children and adults, the Hello Kitty x Converse collection releases Aug. 16 at Converse.com and select retailers.
