Once again CLOT from Hong Kong has teamed up with Converse First String and together they announce the Chang Pao Sneaker Collection for Holiday 2013. Working together for the fifth time already, the two partners chose the 1970s Chuck Taylor All Star silhouette for this latest collaboration.
“The CLOT for Converse First String Chang Pao collection features a blue suede and white canvas edition of the “Chuck 70s” sneaker, each rendered with a classic gum sole, which has become a signature of the CLOT for Converse collaborative works. Classic detailing is brought to life with three Chang Pao-inspired buttons stitched on the lateral upper and through gold, silver and white accents on the eyestays, giving the sneaker an authentic Chinese feel. The collection also features the premium elements of the “Chuck 70” sneaker, including an elevated foxing, added cushioning and a substantial toe box for added comfort, and comes with special packaging including a printed dust bag and a shoe box with gold foil lid.”
The CLOT for Converse First String Chang Pao sneaker collection will be available in limited quantities beginning on Thursday, October 31 at the exclusive Juice Pop-Up store in Los Angeles at 7667 Melrose Avenue, the only U.S. retailer to feature the product. The product will also launch at Juice in Hong Kong, Shanghai, Taipei and Kuala Lumpur on Saturday, November 2 and at select Converse First String retailers across the globe on Friday, November 8.
