Collab Alert: Converse Scratch-Off Sneakers for Maison Martin Margiela
Scratch-off sneakers at Maison Martin Margiela via Converse/Twitpic
Now we know that vintage jewels, fine wine, and mature blokes are all indicators of things that get better with age, but would you believe it if we told you that sneakers, or 'kicks' as some would call them, joined the snobbery too?
Out on the market for $200 (Rs 12,700 aprox) is a new line-up of Converse shoes that have been designed in collaboration with high-fashion label Maison Martin Margiela.
What makes these kicks so special is the very sombre and subtle prissy white colour that palettes the entire sneaker, which interestingly, when scratched-off through regular wear and tear, begins to reveal Converse’s signature eclectic multi-coloured print over time.
With every wear, your trainers get more psychedelic, patterned and interesting, never looking the same as before.
The treatment has been applied to the very popular Chuck Taylor All Star and Jack Purcell sneaker styles by Converse, so for fans and converts, this one’s a kooky pair of lace-ups worth giving a go.
The collection is available at Margiela stores and select Converse First String retailer stores.
