Hip-hop artist reimagines iconic Converse kicks
What happens when American rapper, record producer and fashion designer Tyler, the Creator teams up with Converse? They create the Converse One Star x Golf Le Fleur collection, a set of One Star sneakers in four new colorways.
Since its debut in 1974, the Converse One Star has become a favorite of ’80s punk rockers and ’90s grunge musicians and skateboarders.
Tyler, The Creator’s creative inputs on the classic suede One Star x Golf Le Fleur silhouette include the flower contrast stitching surrounding the iconic star, embroidered bee logo on heel stay, debossed tonal Golf Le Fleur logo on the shoe’s tongue, and the Golf Le Fleur art illustrated on the sock liner and printed outsole graphics.
Still, his most personal touch is a message inscribed on the shoes’ inner and outer soles: “Don’t let ’em kill your flowers, water your garden and stunt.”
The Converse One Star x Golf Le Fleur sneaker collection is available in Airway Blue, Peach Pearl, Sulphur, and Fuchsia Glow, with an interchangeable set of tonal laces.
The shoes are exclusively available in Commonwealth at SM Aura for P 5,350.
