Converse has teamed up with PLEASURES, an LA-based brand known for irreverent graphics, to introduce a new side of the Converse Pro Leather. The collection emphasizes the silhouette as a vehicle for print, with black and white graphics protected by an outer transparent layer. Using Tyvek as the base layer, the graphics have a crinkled aesthetic that wears down over time, so each silhouette boasts its own unique, broken-in look.
“It’s a classic shoe and few have really tapped it creatively, so we’re excited to add the PLEASURES design aesthetic to the DNA of Converse, giving our fans their own version of the silhouette, while attracting some new ones along the way,” says Alex James, PLEASURES co-founder.
The PLEASURES x Converse Pro Leather will launch on the 21st of November on Converse.com and at select Converse dealers globally.
