my new shoes: missoni x converse sneakers


it's finally here. after waiting for months since we saw the preview pics, i received a call from the boutique saying the shoes have finally arrived. if you've seen my twitter message, you would have probably guessed what i've bought. missoni and converse collaborated on this limited edition sneaker, where the body is made up of missoni's signature designs. comes in 2 colors, brown or blue.


the body/shape is made from the exact same specifications as that of converse/chuck taylor sneakers.


it was widely reported that the body of the sneaker was "printed" in missoni patterns. the body was actually made from weaved fabric and not printed canvas. i really like the shoes, so glad i managed to snag myself a pair.



i might have broken my own record by wearing new shoes on the same day it was bought.


and i wore my (only) other pair of converse houndstooth sneakers that day too.


i twittered this when i left the house earlier. ok, might need a little cleaning...


clever move by missoni, doing this collaboration with converse. we dropped by their shop to look at the shoes, and they got us to browse their latest spring 2010 collection too. and i couldn't resist, so i bought this polo-tshirt in dark blue zig-zag stripes, perfect for the coming summer months, and kind of matchy-matchy with my houndstooth sneakers. i wore my current favourite trousers: topman navy blue slim fitted chinos.


chilling, with my uniqlo green socks!

i was told that the missoni x converse collaboration will continue for a second series for fall winter 2010, one in black & white, and another in missoni's signature stripes. although i've not seen the pics, my name is down on their waiting list already.

love my new shoes.

  1. Mazels on the new shoes matey! The missoni print is so iconic and yet so simple - one of the best prints in my opinion (Pucci a close second)!!!

    I think I prefer the Houndstooth and what ever you do refrain from cleaning them...the tattier the better!

    Yours truly

  4. *Swoon* Those Missoni X Converse are incredible!

    I am so jealous of your wardrobe! You have so many pieces I'd die to get my hands on. If you ever have any desire to let go of some pieces, I'd be more than happy to buy ;-)

    Cheers from Seattle,

    for those that enquired: the polo tshirt is from missoni, available from their sloane street store. the trousers are from topman. the houndstooth sneakers are from ages ago, probably can't find them anywhere online now...

    thank you! :)
