Converse recently unveiled a blank pair of its All-Star sneakers that encourage DIY creation for customers to personalize their own iteration for a unique look -- the DIY version boasts the name 'Nurie.' The Nurie sneaker arrives with a set of colored markers in blue, yellow, and red.
The name of the sneaker directly translates to "draw" or "color" in Japanese and the entire upper is covered in the label's branding. The word "Converse" repeats itself in block letters all throughout in black against the white foundation for customers to color them in. Additional details include the tonal "All-Star" label, white laces, eyelets, and midsole, with a Chuck Taylor logo on the medial side, as well as two vents over the footbridge.
