I was invited to share in a little sneak peek of what Converse Philippines has to offer for the seasons of Spring/Summer 2016! As I’ve said, I’ve always been fond of Chucks and it was the perfect time to maybe find out if there’s something upcoming that I’d really like.
The intimate event was staged in Pineapple Lab, a cute little warehouse in residential Rockwell that can serve as a photography studio, exhibit space, or event venue. It was rugged and cool, perfect to highlight the new duds that Converse was releasing!
There are items that I can’t share yet but this post will feature some of the products you can already find in stores nationwide.
They toured us around the studio and showed us the different pieces that we can expect this season. So, forgive the limited number of product photos! Soon I’ll post about them when they’re good and ready, haha!
I stayed until they finished the program and I got new kicks!
They were so nice enough to give me one of the products they were releasing that day, the Chuck Taylor All Star II Mono in black which has Lunarlon insole cushioning. I’ve been wearing them out and man, they are the comfiest Chucks I have ever had.
Anyway, here are some of the new items that you can find in Converse stores around the country:
Chuck Taylor All Star II Mono
The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II retains the iconic Chuck Taylor All Star silhouette you know and love, but is built for more to better meet the demands of your “on the go” lifestyle. Now, it’s available in our popular monochromatic colors to give this innovative sneaker a more classic look. The new stylish expressions goes along with established Chuck II features like Lunarlon insole cushioning, padded non-slip tongue and super soft micro-suede lining. Available in parchment and black for only Php 3,990.
Converse Cons One Star
This season also sees the introduction of the Converse Cons One Star – a lifestyle sneaker with a focus on premium materials. Executed in durablehairy suede, the Converse Cons One Star is available in the original colorways that kicked off its original hype. Key features include a Lunarlon sockliner for cushioning, as well as lightweight Cons traction rubber for better grip. A higher foxing tape also helps deliver a more premium look. Available in red and black for only Php 4,710.
Converse Jack Purcell Remastered in Tumbled Leather
The final addition to the remastered collection is the Converse Jack Purcell Remastered in Tumbled Leather.Thesneaker features a beautifully crafted, premium tumbled leather upper with details including a post-applied Jack Purcell logo on the tongue and punched eyelets for a smooth quality finish. A Lunarlon footbed with a cork top-cloth also provides an added layer of comfort. Available in white, black, and inked at Php 4,950.
So there you have it, guys! I personally am interested in the Jack Purcell ones specifically because I adore anything in leather (the black leather Chucks from so long ago have been haunting me since university) and it looks like it’ll match my personal style! What do you think! Let me know! 🙂
