My new shoes: Missoni x Converse sneakers Fall Winter 2010


whilst in paris last weekend, i also picked up the new sneakers from missoni x converse fall winter 2010. i picked up a pair from their first collaboration from the spring summer 2010 series, and really really like it. there were 2 pairs from this current collection, both in black and white, one in stripes and the other in their signature zig-zag weave.


missoni pushed the boat further this time and added a few nice details to the otherwise classic converse shoes. the tongue, lining and back of the shoes now featured leather detailing in missoni's signature terracota brown. the toe cap is also covered in black leather. they also provided 2 pairs of laces in black and white for you to customise your own look.


left to right: the fall winter 2010 sneakers, the spring summer 2010 sneakers, the classic houndstooth sneakers. i really love these shoes, it's comfy and stylish. i hope the collaboration will continue into 2011. not heard any news, but really hope so.

  10. I just contacted Missoni in London. They said that the retail price was £220. Is this the approximate price worldwide? I thought that they were supposed to cost around $200.

  13. It's $200 in US but extremely hard to find. I bought the last pair from Aloha Rag and it's a bit tight~~~ BTW, the shoe takes great picture but when I received mine, I was a bit disappointed by the quality
