Riding on the phenomenal success of the previous collaboration, Converse has once again partnered Maison Martin Margiela to create a line of uber-chic sneakers featuring the signature white cracked paint finish that is synonymous with the French house of cool. The Converse Maison Martin Margiela First String collection features buttery soft leather interiors for luxury and comfort, while the pure white hand-painted upper emphasizes the simple beauty and silhouette of the iconic footwear. The more the sneakers are worn, the more the white overpaint loosens its hold, elegantly cracking to reveal the hidden, bold colors within. If the cracked paint isn’t enough, a discreet yet distinguishable Maison Martin Margiela logo on the tongue attests to the authenticity of each creation.
“We’re pleased to offer a new expression of such a great collaboration between Converse and the Maison,” says Maison Martin Margiela. “The story of two like-minded brands continues with the evolution of the sneaker collection where personal expression is at the forefront, revealing the expression of vibrant colors shining through an incognito white coat that ages with time.”
