After recently dropping joint capsules with both Just Don and GOLF le FLEUR*, Converse returns with a different approach and design ethos for its utilitarian “Mountain Club” pack. The latest release brings forth functional reiterations of the label’s iconic silhouettes — the Chuck Taylor All Star, One Star and Fastbreak .
Taking plenty of references from Converse‘s archives and military heritage, all three sneakers are reworked with a plethora of rugged elements. Oversized treads, ankle straps and rubber overlays dominate the Converse classics, with GORE-TEX technology added to further illustrate the pack’s utilitarian influence. Rounding out the silhouettes are instructions such as “FOLD GUSSET THIS SIDE ONLY” and “KEEP DOUBLE LACED TO HOLD FIRMLY” visible on the upper.
