GOLF le FLEUR* and Converse Reveal New GLF 2.0 SneakerRelease: 9 June 2022
Tyler, the Creator's whimsical GOLF le FLEUR* brand and Converse have been working together for five years, creating dozens of colourful colabs and a handful of completely new silhouettes along the way. Now, the latter category is growing by one with GOLF and Converse introducing the new GLF 2.0 sneaker.
A spiritual successor to the original GOLF le FLEUR* x Converse One Star that was so omnipotent at the beginning of the two's partnership in 2017 and 2018, the GLF 2.0 is a stripped-back canvas-and-suede sneaker with minimal branding, bright colour schemes and an overall shape that takes cues from the Pro Leather. It's debuted in an 'Oil Green/Bison' colourway that may be the most playful take on a beef 'n' broc colour scheme you'll ever see and a sunny 'Curry/Copper Tan' makeup that was clearly designed with North America's forthcoming summer in mind.
Each pair also features scalloped detailing and distorted design lines that nod to 2019's Gianno Ox, plus custom-printed pink outsoles and insoles. Fat laces, custom tongue tags and GOLF le FLEUR* hangtags round off each look. If you want to skate 'em, they're up to the task thanks to the inclusion of a lightweight CX foam line and durable cup sole.
Expect both colourways of the GOLF le FLEUR* x Converse GLF 2.0 to hit the GOLF le FLEUR* and Converse webstores on June 9. The MSRP is set at $110.
