A$AP Nast and Converse have readied a collection centered around the Jack Purcell Mid, and the collaborative partners are turning the heat up with bold traditional flame graphics. Nast and Converse have worked on everything from One Stars to Chuck 70s in the past, but the mid-top Jack Purcell appears to be the two’s silhouette of choice — this marks a second effort with the modified classic after an outdoors-themed capsule collection that released in March.
Arriving in a ripe “Cherry Tomato” and a menacing “Black/Silver,” each pair uses its midfoot flame graphic in a different fashion. The “Cherry Tomato” equips its reddish-orange base with a shimmering red flame graphic, providing a vivid style. On the other hand, the “Black/Silver” opts for a look that’s much more stark, using a flat silver flame hit made of hi-vis reflective material on its pitch-black bottom layer. Each upper is constructed of corduroy for further old-school flair.
