For the second time Converse has teamed up with Maison Martin Margiela for a 2014 collection! On Friday, May 23rd the shoes were officially released in select stores and online. Each shoe is hand painted in the iconic Maison Martin Margiela white paint. The first Converse x Margiela collaboration shared a very similar design, but this time they’ve added a pretty cool feature. The collaboration will be added to the Converse First String limited edition collection that focuses on craftsmanship, authenticity, and the highest level of collaborations.
The shoes retail price is $250, and I can only imagine them going up seeing as how they’re limited edition. I will admit that the whole “revealing the shoe colour beneath the white paint as you wear it” thing is pretty cool, but I can’t imagine myself wanting to pay $250 for a pair of Converse.
