Converse Hits the Market with a Sporty Don C Collaboration

 - Jan 12, 2019
The Converse and Don C collaboration offers consumers a head-to-toe collection that is strongly inspired by the aesthetics of basketball. The drop sees two separate packs -- the 'Animal' and the 'Metal,' each of which takes a contrasting stance toward the other. While the former "celebrates the innate rivalry between predator and prey," the later intimately explores "the convergence of 80s punk rock and pop genres."

Aside from the colorful and expressive clothing options, the Converse x Don C collaboration sees two footwear renditions that are informed by basketball. A part of the 'Animal' pack, the ERX 260 Mid is made available in two classic leather colorways that are supplemented by playfully wild animal prints. The 'Metal' sub-line, on the other hand, offers the ERX 260s in three additional contrasting palettes with multi-sized studs.
