Carhartt WIP, Converse collaborate for sneakers
today Oct 5, 2018
Inspired by "military bags and detailing adapted for the streets", the collection blends workwear and streetwear, according to a press release.
"Since very early on we’ve incorporated military fabrics and details into our clothes, but with the One Star we wanted to do this with a clean, modern approach," said Wilfried Atzert, global brand director of Carhartt WIP.
"The sleek contrast outsole and robust Cordura fabric are how we’ve translated this element of Carhartt WIP’s DNA into a contemporary, utilitarian sneaker."
The One Star silhouettes feature a Cordura fabric upper with accompanying hangtag and a military-inspired bandolier heel stay webbing with D-ring hardware detail.
Furthermore, the tongue logo patch is made from the coated tarp-type material, much like the trailer covers of large trucks.
Available in black, olive and white, the sneakers are available in-store at Carhartt and Converse and online.
