Converse launches the third, limited collection of Missoni for Converse Chuck Taylor All Star shoes for men and women.

Continuing on the success of the 2010 collaboration between Converse and Missoni, two new styles are being released by these iconic brands for the upcoming 2011 season. Again using iconic Missoni space-dyed knits, this collection includes vibrant multi colored horizontal stripe patterns using the exclusive to Converse First String Chuck Taylor All Star silhouette, originally created for the US military in the 1960s.

A women’s only version will be available in a palette of aqua green, purple and black and a unisex version will come in varying shades of green, yellow, red and blue. Each includes an embossed monochromatic Chuck Taylor All Star leather logo patch and high level construction throughout.

As a part of Converse First String, Converse’s high-level product program that celebrates craftsmanship, authenticity and pure expression, each shoe will be available in limited quantities beginning in March at Missoni boutiques (New York and Beverly Hills), Aloha Rag (New York), Canvas (Malibu) & Jeffrey’s (New York and Atlanta), and also at select retailers globally at MSRP $200.
