Converse teams up with First String veterans Undefeated & Edison Chen’s CLOT for a joint collaboration
Last week, Converse Inc. announces the launch of the Converse UNDFTD x CLOT Chuck Taylor All Star ushering in a new joint collaboration between Converse and two longstanding First String partners Undefeated and CLOT. The sneaker collection consists of two styles, which combine iconic elements from each brand, fusing Undefeated’s military and sport-driven ethos with CLOT’s lens on Eastern and Western urban lifestyle culture.
The Converse UNDFTD x CLOT Chuck Taylor All Star collection focuses on material and design as a source of expression with the use of sateen nylon and orange silk. The sateen nylon is a favorite material from the Undefeated arsenal inspired by the classic MA1 flight jacket. The sneaker is accented with orange outsole detailing and finished off with an orange silk lining developed by CLOT adding a touch of luxury representing Clot’s roots in Eastern culture. Designed with an innovative zip-up lace guard woven into the exterior, the sneaker is available in two color ways: black and olive.
A veteran Converse collaborator, Undefeated is an international men’s lifestyle brand and retailer that incorporates military influence into street style culture. CLOT is a lifestyle brand based in Hong Kong and founded by Edison Chen and Kevin Poon.
Converse First String is a limited-edition collection that celebrates craftsmanship, authenticity and collaboration at the highest level. The Converse UNDFTD x CLOT Chuck Taylor All Star sneakers will be available starting Saturday, August 24 at JUICE in Hong Kong and UNDFTD in Las Vegas for $120USD and presumably will arrive in Malaysia in the coming months for around RM450 (if not just purchase it online, I guess).
