Attention sneaker fantatics: Converse launches its second sneaker collection with French fashion house Maison Martin Margiela today!

The newest (much-hyped) Converse x Maison Martin Margiela ‘First String’ collection plays with the same concept as the first collaboration, they’ve taken the Converse All Star Chuck ’70s and the Converse Jack Purcell sneakers and hand painted them a clean white. Of course, the white paint is designed to flake off the leather with wear, gradually revealing the bright base underneath. Expect to see amber glow and true navy with the Converse All Star Chuck ’70s and azure blue and biking red with the Converse Jack Purcell.

Need more? The four distinct sneakers all feature the Maison Martin Margiela logo on the tongue, and both silhouettes are accented with painted and non-painted lace options.
