Converse collaborates with Undefeated and Clot in latest collection (Slideshow)

Converse collection features Undefeated’s (UNDFTD) military and CLOT’s Eastern culture design inspirations.

Today, Converse Inc. announces the launch of the Converse UNDFTD x CLOT Chuck Taylor All Star, ushering in a new joint collaboration between Converse and two longstanding First String partners Undefeated and CLOT. The sneaker collection consists of two styles that combine iconic elements from each brand, fusing Undefeated’s military and sport-driven ethos with CLOT’s lens on Eastern and Western urban lifestyle culture.

The Converse UNDFTD x CLOT Chuck Taylor All Star collection focuses on material and design as a source of expression with the use of sateen nylon and orange silk. Sateen nylon is a favorite material from the Undefeated arsenal inspired by the classic MA1 flight jacket. The sneaker is accented with orange outsole detailing and finished off with an orange silk lining developed by CLOT — adding a touch of luxury.  Designed with an innovative zip-up lace guard woven into the upper, the sneaker is available in black and olive colorways.

A veteran Converse collaborator, Undefeated is an international men’s lifestyle brand and retailer that incorporates military influence into street style culture. CLOT is a lifestyle brand based in Hong Kong, founded by Edison Chen and Kevin Poon.

Converse First String is a limited-edition collection that celebrates craftsmanship, authenticity and collaboration at the highest level. The Converse UNDFTD x CLOT Chuck Taylor All Star sneakers will be available starting Friday, August 23 at JUICE in Hong Kong and Undefeated stores for $120.
