Frank Ocean has again showcased his sneaker clout by lacing up in an unreleased colab by an influential designer.
Worn by Ocean during his FYF Festival performance, the shoes are J.W. Anderson’s Converse Chuck Taylor All Star. They match the singer's sneaker style to a T, merging his simple taste (epitomised by his sporting of Vans Slip-ons to the White House) with his penchant for pizazz (evidenced by the Gucci Aces he wore on Chanel's cover art).
The Chucks themselves are coloured like the faux parachutes found in every gym teacher's arsenal, sprinkled with glitter for a luxe look that separates them from the pack. Not that they'll need any extra help selling – Frank wearing these feet Skittles guarantees they'll fly off shelves.
The J.W. Anderson x Converse Chuck Taylor All Star isn't scheduled for a release as yet, although word is they’ll hit stores at the end of 2017.
