Converse and Don C’s second head-to-toe capsule featuring ’80s basketball silhouette the ERX 260 includes five executions of the shoe based on two ideas: animal and metal.
The Metal pack offers three additional distinct ERX 260s in colour palettes reminiscent of the convergence of ’80s punk rock and pop genres. Each is embellished by an assortment of multi-size studs and is adorned with an oversize “CONS” logo print on the tongue, lighting bolt graphics and multiple lace options.
The Animal pack uses two classic leather colorways (black and white) as its base and accents each of the shoes with an animal print — a signature execution of Don C’s. Each sneaker comes with two lace sets that mirror the print on the heel overlays.
Each shoe is constructed with a renewed EVA midsole, while the upper and rubber cupsole mirror the original build. In addition, the patterns and textures are extended through an accompanying four-piece apparel and accessories set, this time set with glam metal era tones.
The collection launches on 12th January on converse.com and select retailers.
