Feng Chen Wang is customizing footwear for her spring ’19 New York Fashion Week Men’s show again. This time around, she’s working with Converse.
The London-based men’s designer, who made her runway debut at NYFW just two years ago as part of the VFiles runway show for spring 2016, has already collaborated with Nike, creating an all-white Air Jordan 1 FlyKnit for the current season. So it seems only natural that the Royal College of Art graduate would give her take on Converse’s iconic Chuck Taylor All-Stars.
Wang’s customized shoes will hit the runway on July 10.
In sketches provided, low-top and high-top versions of the brand’s classic Chucks come in several colorways including dark blue, pinkish-purple and red. Each shoe also features a statement-making deconstructed rubber toe.
More shots reveal an assortment of high-top Chucks with cut-open heels. Some appear to be part black and part white, while others look like they were painted blue.
