Longtime collaborators Tyler, the Creator and Converse are coming together again to release two new iterations of the Golf Le Fleur Gianno sneaker this week.
This is a new model from the rapper and the brand that brings together influences from Converse’s classic basketball and hiker silhouettes. It will be available in the new “Parfait Pink” and “Skylight” colorways this week.
The “Parfait Pink” style opts for a pink-based upper that contrasts with shades of light brown, while the “Skylight” features a bevy of blue mixed with yellow.
The model incorporates different materials on the upper, including leather, nylon and suede, while the thick lug outsole is designed to be worn for various purposes, such as hiking.
The shoes will be available at select Converse stockists on April 17, including international retailer End. Clothing. The retail price is $129.
Tyler’s partnership with Converse kicked off in 2017, and since then, the duo has released a handful of collaborative sneakers through Tyler’s Golf Le Fleur line. Some of the silhouettes include the One Star, Chuck 70s and the Gianno shoe.
In related news, Nike Inc., the company that owns Converse, has closed its retail stores until further notice across the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Western Europe due to the coronavirus pandemic.
