The Converse Well Worn collection
Well we’ll be damned; apparently the age of box-fresh squeaky clean trainers is well and truly over! News reached our fashion desk this morning that casual-dressing favourite Converse is launching a new line of trainers that are already a bit battered and worn in, to give that pre-loved look – in the true Converse spirit of Shoes Keep It Clean, Sneakers Get Dirty.
The Well Worn collection will feature their iconic Chuck Taylor in softer washed canvas with stained and distressed soles and toe caps, slightly dirtied and with thinner laces. The new season hues will be butterscotch, tango red, and our personal favourite, turtledove and are available from Office from £50 for low-tops and £55 for high-tops.
To celebrate the launch, Converse will be holding a series of free music gigs for Converse fans, customers and sneaker lovers. The Get Dirty music series will be held in London’s 100 Club and already the line-up includes Ghostface Killah, The Cribs, Gallows, Doom, China Rat and Carnival Kids on the 17th, 18th and 19th of April. See the clip above to get excited for the gigs, and if you fancy heading along, head to Converse.co.uk and register for your chance to win tickets.
