Comme des Garcons wears its heart on a (Converse) shoe
Vintage Chuck Taylors get a modern makeover.
Comme des Garcons and Converse have collaborated on a line of four sneaker styles called Comme des Garcons Play for Converse Collection.
Digging into the Converse archives, Comme des Garcons’ Rei Kawakubo resurrected a Chuck Taylor style originally made for the U.S. military in the 1950s, and stamped it with her signature red heart-face.
The collection is unisex, includes two high-tops and two oxfords and retails for $100.
