UPDATE: The Undefeated x Converse One Stars were announced with little warning, and many punters missed out as a result. Luckily, all is not lost! Some European stores are still receiving stock – so if you were left wanting the first time around, be sure to lurk Overkill online when they release on May 11.
UPDATE: Having only been revealed the day before its release, the Undefeated x Converse One Star colab managed to seriously fly under the radar. Nevertheless, the shoe has landed and with it, an up-close photographical exploration to tantalise your eyeballs. If you're lucky you might still be able to track a pair down, so get clicking!
We are used to colabs dropping with little warning in the current sneakersphere, but this newly-revealed collaboration between Converse and West Coast retailer Undefeated certainly pushes things to their limit. Announced only the day before release, the Undefeated crew bring us a premium take on the classic One Star.
Constructed with a hairy suede upper and supple leather lining, two colourways have been shown, one white and the other in olive green with a hazard orange outsole (a classic Undefeated combination). Red and blue pinstripes have been added to the midsole, harking back to the Cons of days gone by. The collaborative cosigns are relegated to the grosgrain heel stay, which is adorned with a rubber printed Undefeated logo. Fortunately, simplicity works best on the One Star and both make-ups are stunning examples of this.
The Undefeated x Converse One Star pack will be available May 9 exclusively through Undefeated, both in-store and online.
