2017 has been the gift that keeps on giving for fans of the Converse One Star. Where 2016 saw the likes of Stüssy and Fragment offer up fresh takes on the iconic joints, this year’s roll call has arguably been even mightier. London retailer Footpatrol came through with a no-nonsense, creamy-clean iteration; colette x Club 75 kept things decidedly Parisian with these beauties; and hip-hop’s enfant terrible, Tyler, the Creator, offered up some baby blue bangers inspired by his latest LP. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. In house, Converse has been doing what Converse does: creating fresh reworks without compromising what made the sneaker so great in the first place.
Trying to decide a single favorite is tough, so we’ve rounded up some of the best. Peep them below, and keep up to date with future sneaker drops by staying tuned to the What Drops Now calendar.
