The Converse One Star continues to show up across global street culture, with celebrated sneaker boutique Sneakersnstuff creating a limited-edition capsule in collaboration with Converse.
The One Star take on the military print comes to life through texture and color. Translating a traditionally graphic application into a unique patchwork of suede and leather, Converse and SNS focused on the classic “canteen” palette.
The sneaker’s foxing tape features a military laundry tag and heel stay displays a debossed SNS logo. Additional features include goat leather lining, vintage cotton laces, co-branded sock liners, and the silhouette’s iconic star in Nappa leather.
“Camo has always played an important role in fashion and streetwear,” said Erik Fagerlind co-founder of Sneakersnstuff. “We wanted to elevate the print by stitching leather together in a slow, unnatural process. We do not believe in taking shortcuts. This is not fast fashion. The collection is thorough, genuine and displays a high level of craftsmanship.”
The One Star x Sneakersnstuff collaboration is now available, exclusively at Shelflife stores.
The Plug is aimed at providing engrossing content about local street wear and hip hop culture. We’ll be featuring rising and established hip hop and fashion stars, as well as offering critical think pieces on the current state of culture.
