The iconic One Star 74 was recently released, and with the upcoming Tyler the Creator collaboration, Converse is the star of the sneaker show.
Converse is an iconic footwear brand, and what was once a basic basketball shoe design found its purpose beyond the court.The humble All Star has been regularly updated or altered in one way or another since it was introduced a century ago.Despite being a relative underachiever on its original release, the Converse One Star’s impact has been substantial.
What was once classified as the All Star, the One Star shoe made it’s debut 1970s, but a bigger release was noted in 1974.The One Star’s comeback has arrived with welcomed modifications. Notable collaborations have been with Tokyo’s fragment design that redefines familiarity with a tactile type of suede, while Neighborhood play on metal and hardcore connections. Tyler The Creator is set to launch his collaboration with One Star, and we eagerly await the release.
In celebration of Reebok’s 20th anniversary of the iconic InstaPump Fury comes an exciting new collaboration with Frank the Butcher, using one of the sneaker world’s most renowned design experts to rework one of Reebok’s most innovative silhouettes.
Frank’s development from sneaker fan to a respected designer reflects in his designs, showing genuine passion and individualist design that make up his signature aesthetic. Also known as the ‘Father/Daughter’ pack these limited edition InstaPump Fury’s were inspired by the creative talent of Frank’s daughter, resulting in two colourways that could be worn by both men and women.
The collaboration falls under Frank The Butcher’s Business As Usual (BAU) collection and have the signature slogan “All Is Fair” embroidered over the toe box. They feature a woven jacquard splatter design across the upper in either nude or candy pink, colour block leather accents at the toe and heel, a white Hexalite sole unit and of course the iconic Pump mechanism.
The 2 colours of the limited InstaPump Fury x BAU are only available in store in Offspring Selfridges London.
