oscar niemeyer for converse

chuck taylor all star hi



the 104 year old architect oscar niemeyer has collaborated with converse to produce a limited edition collection of shoes
for fall. models include the chuck taylor all star hi, chuck taylor all star oxford, chuck taylor all star chukka boot,
skid grip oxford and the jack purcell.


lines of red stitching contrast the neutral tan and white body, and a red tongue expresses the bold canopy on his ibirapuera auditorium.
the canvas upper features a print with a handwritten poem by the brazilian architect about his love for curves in architecture.
prices for the sneakers will range from 170 to 270 BRL.
