Converse‘s Chuck Taylor and Jack Purcell models inspire the latest from Nepenthes sub-label Needles, a collection cleverly entitled the “Asymmetric Sneakers.” Four colorways grace the cotton and suede models, with a sulfur dye giving each pair a vivid hue. Pushing a “perfectly imperfect” aesthetic, each shoe combines mis-matched toe boxes with an uneven dye pattern stretching across the upper and beyond. The unique ghillie lacing style adds to the off-beat feel of the collection, transforming the humble tennis shoe into something altogether more interesting. Available in red, white, black and blue, get out that loose yen and pick yourself up a pair at the Nepenthes webshop now.
