We thought we were already truly #blessed when Vans announced its line of velvet sneakers for the festive season, but it's now clear our joy was premature because Converse just upped the ante with its Glitter_Gutter collection created in partnership with JW Anderson.
Comprised of three models – Chuck high top, Chuck low top and Thunderbolt – the sneakers come decorated in contrasting blocks of blue, green, red and black glittery canvas. According to Jonathan Anderson:
"GLITTER_GUTTER stemmed from the idea of breaking iconic silhouettes with something unexpected. Taking the glitter out of context and wearing it with a pair of washed chinos, for example."
Anderon believes the Glitter_Gutter collection goes beyond any gender attribution and just like the iconic Chuck Taylor 70 design can be worn by men, women and everyone in between. Speaking to Vogue about his collaboration with Converse, the designer said it's "the first time [he's] excited about projecting [himself] into a product."
The Converse x JW Anderson collaboration is set to hit the stores globally on December 14, 2017. The price will range between $130 and $140.
