The Converse One Star continues to show up across global street culture, with celebrated sneaker boutique Sneakersnstuff creating a limited-edition capsule in collaboration with Converse.
Fueled by a desire to modernize the Camo print, a staple on the scene, Converse x SNS introduces a bold twist on ERDL, a print developed by US Army Engineer Research and Development Laboratory in the 60s.
The One Star take on the military print comes to life through texture and color. Translating a traditionally graphic application into a unique patchwork of suede and leather into the classic “canteen” palette. The sneaker’s foxing tape features a military laundry tag and heel stay displays a debossed SNS logo. Additional features include goat leather lining, vintage cotton laces, co-branded sock liners, and the silhouette’s iconic star in Nappa leather.
“Camo has always played an important role in fashion and streetwear,” said Erik Fagerlind co-founder of Sneakersnstuff. “We wanted to elevate the print by stitching leather together in a slow, unnatural process. We do not believe in taking shortcuts. This is not fast fashion. The collection is thorough, genuine and displays a high level of craftsmanship.”
Originating in Stockholm circa 1999, Sneakersnstuff brings the latest sneakers to locals and has helped to define street-style through distinct product curation and collaborations ever since.
The Converse x SNS classic “canteen palette will be available starting April 12 at Dover Street Market Singapore
