Famed designer label and iconic footwear maker JW Anderson and Converse recently collaborated to come up with a pair of sneakers that feature elaborate platform soles, which are accented with hints of color and jagged texturing along the outsoles.
Countering the boldly designed platforms that are at the focus of the sneakers are a set of a minimalist uppers, which make use of Converse's classic Chuck Taylor look, including the All Star branding that's featured on the sides of the ankles. The white canvas is complemented with matching laces, while hints of black mark the branding, as well as the rubber inclusions at the tops of the platforms.
The JW Anderson and Converse sneakers will be available online starting January 16th, with limited quantities available.
