Iconic architect Oscar Neimeyer and celebrated sneaker company recently collaborated to create the Neimeyer x Converse limited edition collection. The 104-year-old architect's style, celebrated for his modern concrete building designs, is emulated in the streamlined collection.

The line features five various designs and shoe styles. Each sneaker is adorned with white and oatmeal fabric, which is accented with red colors. The most notable shoe of the collection is the classic high top sneaker, which features a poem written by the architect himself.

The collection, which was launched October 23rd, is unfortunately only available in Brazil, which is where the legendary architect still resides to this day in Rio De Janeiro. Even if you can't get your hands on the Neimeyer x Converse collection, it can still be celebrated as another winning collection for the sneaker brand.
