Converse Cons First String Engineered Auckland Racer
The Converse Auckland Racer has been pulled in under the branch of Converse CONS, which seems to be the One Star brand's name for anything that ain't a Jack Purcell or Chuck Taylor. In this 'Engineered' pack drop, we see Nike's venerated tight-weave Jacquard fabric planted onto the one-piece uppers of five fresh colourways, including classic Red, White, Navy renditions and fun-lovin' Mint Leaf and fiery coral. Nice details include waxed round laces with reflective detailing and a neato marbled footbed – it's also a super light package all up, so actually running in these wouldn't be out of the question, even though the focus is probably more on fashion. The Converse CONS Engineered Auckland Racer in Mint Leaf and Fiery Coral will be available at Converse retail stores, Bodega in Boston, Juice in Hong Kong and Patta in Amsterdam on Friday, August 15. The Red, White and Navy sneakers will be available exclusively at Converse stores in North America on Friday, August 22. In Australia The Converse CONS Engineered Auckland Racer in Mint Leaf and Fiery Coral will be available exclusively on Saturday, August 16 from Up There Store Melbourne. The Red, White and Navy sneakers will be available exclusively from the Converse Melbourne Central Flagship Store and from selected Hype DC doors on Saturday August 23.
