From the ground up

It’s a race for the flag this Memorial Day and Converse not only got there first, they went and made a pair of shoes from it.

Finished with nickel eyelets and a vintage license plate, they’re like the apple pie of footwear: driving a Chevy, listening to Springsteen. These limited edition kicks go on sale May 23 from and North American inline stores, but you gotta move fast if you want to be among the 1,300 lucky patriots who get to show off just how much they love their country.
