It's really a shame that I might have to call one of my buddies in Los Angeles to try and cop some of these, because these are super clean. The good folks over at Converse have collaborated with the progressive Hong Kong based brand CLOT on their own personal remix of the Chuck Taylor:
Today, Converse Inc. announces the CLOT x Converse First String Chang Pao sneaker collection for Holiday 2013. This marks the fifth time Converse collaborates with the Asian streetwear label, this time putting the focus on the iconic 1970s Chuck Taylor All Star silhouette. The new collection is inspired by CLOT’s ideology of East meets West, and draws direct influence from the Chang Pao traditional Chinese formalwear dating back to the Qing Dynasty.
Those cream Chucks and the backpack (check the gallery below) would look awesome on your boy. I'm just saying.
Converse First String is a limited-edition collection that celebrates craftsmanship, authenticity and collaboration at the highest level. The CLOT for Converse First String Chang Pao sneaker collection will be available in limited quantities beginning on Thursday, October 31 at the Juice Pop-Up store in Los Angeles located at 7667 Melrose Ave, the only US retailer to feature the product. The sneakers will retail for a MSRP of $120 and will be available in men’s sizes 3-12.Array
