Converse just debuted the CONS CTS fragment design Collection, with the help of Tokyo streetwear icon Hiroshi Fujiwara.
Fujiwara calls himself a “Cultural DJ.” This is the start of Fujiwara’s collaborations with Converse.
The Converse CONS CTS fragment design Collection will be available at select retailers starting Thursday, September 10, 2015 in Asia, with a worldwide release on Friday, September 11, 2015. They will retail for $80 in the States.
The Converse CONS CTS fragment design Collection stays true to the original, but is equipped with the toughness CONS sneakers are known for. The heavy vintage canvas uppers are finished in three classic colorways: black, parchment and navy – each with contrast white stitching and nickel hardware – as well as two bold metallic striped versions, finished in silver and gold on a clean white base, with tonal hardware.
The sneakers are subtly loaded with unique fragment design detailing, such as Hiroshi’s signature midsole branding, suggestive labeling and simple logo placement. They also come with all the essential CONS skateboarding details, including the drop-in Lunarlon sockliners for superior cushioning, memory foam padding for a customized fit, and traction rubber outsoles for boardfeel and grip.
