One thing surprising in the releases from designers and footwear brands for this 2014 Fall/Winter season, is the prolific use of bright colours. Witness for example, the car-shoe collection, featuring bright yellow leopard print, the BBC limited edition bright red Timberland colalboration boot, and even over at Saint Laurent, their winter sneaker collection makes only one concession, gum-shoe sole's to hide mud on rainy winter days.
And so it is that Converse are releasing a collaborative collection with Missoni, a brand more readily associated with colourful beach dresses and bikini's. Definitely not something that we would associate with winter. So perhaps optimism is the flavour of the 2014 Fall/Winter season?
Converse's offerings will be bold and bright, featuring low and high top chuck taylor all stars in knitwear patterns. Available now exclusively from Nordstrom's online webstore, they cost from £80 per pair.
