When it comes to sneaker fashion, we’ve learned one thing by heart; collaborations between streetwear labels always breed awesomeness. That said, the latest collection that would be coming as part of a collaboration would be that of Kasina and Converse.
Both the high-end brands have been a favorite of the masses for a long time. Kasina came into the sneaker game in 1997 and has since been the first choice for several artists, musicians, and skateboarders who dwell in the brand’s country of birth – South Korea.
This year the Seoul-based brand is celebrating 20 years of its successful existence by collaborating with Converse to breathe new life into the Chuck 70 Ox and One Star sneakers. These new takes are going to be more on the simple side with prominent design elements nodding at both the brands.
If you’re someone who has a love affair with all things classic, these two pairs are for you. They manage to blend stylish with plain. Coming in overall black with traces of white and red, the color scheme is definitely timeless.
Worn with a pair of navy blue denim jeans and a plaid tee or white Bermuda shorts and a hoodie, these sneakers would work to complement anything you clad. The black, white, and red combo is one that can be paired with several outfits without mistakes. These sneakers are not just the best choices for the summer season but would walk you into winter too, in style.
Kasina was created with the goal to promote Korean streetwear style, give skateboarders more choices, and to bring the country’s youth on board. In this collaboration as well, the footwear giant salutes its roots.
Both the Chuck 70 Ox and One Star sneakers that have gotten a makeover with this collection have top-notch leather uppers and fine contrast stitching that shows. The white midsoles have black pinstripe detailing. The outsoles are translucent and feature star logos in red representing Converse.
The heels of the sneakers have the Hanja character “女” and the year of origin of the brand, 1997, printed as well. The pairs feature a white lacing system. Apart from boasting good looks and a premium built, both the iterations are also comfy fits.
Whether you are an ardent skateboarder or someone who would just like to casually rock a pair from the collaborative efforts of Kasina and Converse, this pair is worth the bucks. It’s set to drop this Friday, on July 13 so there are only three days of waiting involved. That compiles the details that have been unveiled so far. The pricing of both the Chuck 70 Ox and One Star sneakers has not been released yet.
