Converse UK Launches Chuck Taylor Collection

01 August 2013 by

Cara Delevingne and Rihanna's rebellious wardrobes have encouraged us to bring out our wild side of late with slogan tees, fierce studs and ear cuffs - and now we have Converse to thank for another punky addition to our style ouvere. Yes, the brand's new Chuck Taylor All Star Rock Craftsmanship sneaker collection is guaranteed to add a touch of toughness to your outfit, from updated hardwear and premium leather to studs with double zips and distressed washes.

So which will you choose? Amongst our faves is the chunky-heeled distressed grey denim sneaker, with silver zips and studs (top row, left) and the classic white shoe jazzed up with studs (top row, second from right). Added bonus: prices start at just £55.

To celebrate the launch Converse will take over 'The Circle' tattoo parlours on Soho's Noel Street, offering 60 adventurous (and very brave) fans the chance to get a unique inking from renowned artists including Adrien Edek, Matt 'Oddboy' Barrett-Jones, Kamil Mocet and Frederick Reinel. Ri-Ri would be proud!

Of course, this isn't the first time Converse collab we've been treated to this year. The brand reunited with fashion authority Comme des Garçons for the third time in May, with four new styles of the iconic Converse Pro Leather sneaker.
