From the ground up

Once again Number (N)ine collaborates with Converse, this time presenting the Odessa sneaker.

“The unique design was inspired by the Odessa, a Converse running trainer from the ’80s. For fall ’10, Miyashita has worked his magic on a modern interpretation of the Odessa – and here it is.

Similar to the previous releases, the sneakers feature premium deer skin uppers with smooth leather lining on the inside.

The thing that really sets them apart though, is the soles. The Chucks and One Stars used the ubiquitous vulcanised soles, while these are fitted with comfy running-orientated soles.

Not something that you see everyday on a collab Converse release; they’re fitted with translucent outsoles for good measure too.”

The sneaker will be released soon in two colorways. You can check out the sneaker in detail after the jump.
