If you’re a sneaker-lover, you’ll enjoy this rad new collaboration between Converse and Maison Martin Margiela. Converse’s most popular shoe, the Chuck Taylor, is being revamped by way of a fresh coat of paint -- literally. Maison Martin Margiela has taken a fresh spin on the shoe by coating it in a layer of white paint that naturally dries and cracks off to reveal the original color underneath.

This shoe is awesome for someone who hates continually re-wearing the same things, because it's constantly changing simply through the wear and tear of walking in them and having the paint crack off. The shoes come in four colors, including a Margiela original yellow. If you want to inject a little bit of high-fashion into your everyday life, definitely give these fun shoes a try. They're available this September for $200. Stats for Color-Cracking Designer Kicks Trending: Older & Mild
