Some may consider the Converse and Missoni collaboration as a match made in heaven; their recent launch Auckland Racer is unusual and comes in two color options.

Both sneakers feature the signature Missoni knitting on them. One of them is a multi-hued, exotic and Rastafarian-like design that would complete a bohemian with an athletic touch. The other one is a more toned down gray sneaker for those who prefer to keep their shoes on the more neutral side.

This unlikely collaboration radiates both brands' involvement in the design acutely and results in a surprisingly chic runner option. The sneaker have recently been put in stock and are available for purchase at Tres Bien for 295 Euros. Stats for Vibrantly Knitted Sneakers Trending: Older & Average
