A$AP Nast and Converse join forces once again on a collaborative project -- this time, the Harlem rapper highlights some iconic Converse silhouettes to honor the brand's heritage. He chose to rework the signature Jack Purcell Chukka Mid sneakers and draws inspiration from the label's own Jack Purcell Ox.

This influence informs the uppers by extending the canvas material all the way to a mid-top structure. The midsoles are also extended with rubber foxing to provide added support to the entire design. To accompany the sneakers, the collaboration also drops two crewneck sweaters, sweatpants to match, and some graphic tees done in a vintage fashion with wordmarks reading "JP" at the front to refer to Jack Purcell.
