After teaming up on the “Toy” collection, JW Anderson and Converse have reunited on a special edition Chuck Taylor All-Star, exclusive to retailer Net-A-Porter. Unlike the “Toy” Chuck Taylors, this shoe recalls the original collaborative design, with monochrome detailing replacing of bold hues.
This sneaker most closely recalls Anderson’s original take on the shoe, with black-on-white graphics printed on the canvas upper. Black and white laces mirror the monochrome detailing, while a conventional white midsole, complete with black foxing, aids in grounding the illustrative imagery above, which is entirely sourced from JW Anderson’s latest ready-to-wear collection. The artwork is completed with white “JWA” branding towards the rear of the shoe.
