In a move that further blurs the line between Nike and Converse, the Swoosh’s heavy hitting HTM design collective update the Converse Auckland Racer. Much like the trio's futuristic reboot the Converse All Star Modern, the Auckland Modern sees the evolution of the retro runner with space-age tech. The sneaker boasts a deluxe goat leather tongue and heel panel, borrows Nike’s Hyperfuse construction and bounces on an ultralight Phylon sole. With a dark grey mesh upper and welded overlay branding, the latest Converse silhouette will drop in limited numbers.
The Converse Auckland Modern HTM will release worldwide on July 14 exclusively via NikeLab.
