Yet another colab has leaked, reinforcing our suspicion that it’s impossible to keep secrets in the digital age. The shoe in question is a Converse One Star worked over by Hong Kong streetwear OGs, CLOT. A small taste of the brand’s culture comes by way of Chinese characters drawn from the Analects of Confucius: ‘Ancient scholars for themselves, today’s scholars for people.’ Dark, shaggy suede covers the shoe and lends the upper a wispiness like grey whiskers on the face of a wise old man. The insoles bear symbols equally as philosophical as the midsole’s teaching.
The CLOT x Converse One Star hasn’t been given a release date just yet. We’ll let you know as soon it has been.
