Available in-store as of tomorrow, Converse has just announced details of a new collaboration with four of Europe’s most street aware retailers.
Hooking up with Food Patrol in London, Solebox in Berlin, Starcow in Paris and Patta in Amsterdam, the Converse Cons Breakpoint Collection is comprised of four new shoes, each designed in partnership with the stores.
For its part, Foot Patrol presents a blue suede model with a red strip at the back, white sole and the Star Chevron mark subtlety embroidered on the side; the collaborative logo features on the heel tab and sockliner.
“We’re really excited to celebrate the launch of the new Converse CONS Breakpoint sneaker in partnership with four cultural heavyweights,” Brand Director Converse EMEA, Martina Luger offers, “and be able to share the inspirational creative vision of their cities through the Breakpoint Zine.”
Said zine sees each store curate 20 pages featuring submissions from local talent across the respective creative scenes; illustrator Bob Motown represents London while Han Sole takes the Berlin title, Marwan Kenzari for Amsterdam and graphic designer Ilk, Paris. Much like the shoes, the zine has a limited print run and is available exclusively from the four stores.
