Sneaker collabs just keep getting better. The latest exciting street drop brings together the popular star Hello Kitty and the cult sneaker brand Converse. The brand will release a Hello Kitty footwear and apparel collection that will make your inner child smile from ear to ear. The cartoon character makes an appearance on a variety of pieces, making this collection a real treat for all Hello Kitty obsessives.
Celebrity collaborations are everyone’s favorite. And we’ve been waiting since forever for the one between Miley Cyrus and Converse to come out. The singer/actress teased the designs on several occasions, leaving fans even more excited. We’re happy to announce that the day of the release has finally come.
The collection is in Miley’s recognizable style. So get ready to see a lot of glitter and vibrant colors. It’s all about having fun and not limiting yourself to a certain color or design. Cyrus designed the line with no gender in mind. She wanted her shoes and garments to be for everyone, no matter the age or the sex. Miley is one of the loudest advocates for gender fluidity, so you can see where that idea came from. She is also an active member of the LGBT community, empowering people from all around the world through her social media platforms.
“Converse has no boundaries. It’s outspoken. I’ve always identified with Converse because the brand appeals to and represents so many different cultures and walks of life. And they’re accessible. I definitely had my fans in mind and in my heart when I was creating. I put what they love about me and what I love about them into the design… No age, no gender, no sex — I wanted everyone to feel included.”- Cyrus said.
Ellen Von Unwerth is the one who took the shots for the Miley Cyrus x Converse campaign. The popular singer is surrounded by confetti and glitter in the pictures. You’ll see disco balls, velvet pastel sofas, metallic balloons and bubbles in the air. It must have been a crazy party! The best thing about the ads is that Cyrus and Converse tapped some of her biggest fans to star next to her. The cast shows diversity in a number of means.
The collaboration resulted in 43 items, all designed by the superstar. She reworked the iconic Chuck Taylor All Star sneaker, added high platforms, glittery sole, holographic laces and a signature Miley logo. The singer created a fun Mickey Mouse-like print, that is plastered all over the garments. She opted for shades of white, black, pastel pink, baby blue, grey, and shimmery metallics. There is a strong nod to her country roots, with the paisley bandana print on tops, leggings, and sneakers. The line also features activewear, including tracksuits, backpacks, tees, hoodies, dresses, shorts, socks, hats and more. The collection dropped this morning, so you can start shopping at converse.com. It will also be available at select Converse stores and retailers.
Three legendary sneaker brands teamed up to create an even more legendary collection. Nike, Converse, and Jordan announced that they will be releasing a line of 16 sneaker designs that pay homage to the NBA Playoff race. The retro-inspired collection is called “Art of a Champion” and will feature a mystery drop at the end of the championship.
This partnership is all about the number 16. This is the number of basketball playoffs that one team has to win in order to get the sought-after NBA championship title. So, Nike and its divisions Jordan Brand and Converse are celebrating the history of this sport and all the ones that have contributed to making it a world-popular one. The NBA 2018 Playoffs start on April 14, which is the same day when the first design drops. They end on May 8.
The collection will honor some of the biggest basketball names in the history. You will see the favorite sneakers of legends such as Michael Jordan, Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant, Ray Allen, Scottie Pippen, Rasheed Wallace, and LeBron James. All of the designs are inspired by significant moments in the careers of these players. They will be a perfect reminder of how basketball has a way of shaping and inspiring people’s lives.
Among the designs, you’ll find many that you’ll instantly recognize by the name. The Nike selection includes Scottie Pippen’s legendary Air Maestro 2, the Air Force 1 with a signature Rasheed Wallace vibe, Kobe 1 Protro, KD IV, the Zoom Soldier LeBron 1 and a special-edition sneaker that pays homage to Moses Malone.
Converse’s collection features several iconic styles including the Converse Pro Leather Mid, Chuck 70 Ox, Fastbreak Hi, and Star Player Ox. These designs celebrate the genius players Wes Unseld, Julius Erving, Bill Russel and Kevin McHale.
And leave it up to Jordan to finish off the line with the absolute favorites of all-times. First of all, you’ll see the Air Jordan 14 “Last Shot”, dedicated to the legend’s final shot during the last game of his career. They are followed by Air Jordan 1 “Pass the Torch” for Kawhi Leonard, Air JordanXX8 for Ray Allen and Air Jordan 11 Low “Rook to Queen” for Maya Moore.
The three brands will first release 15 sneakers. The 16th “Art of a Champion” pair will completely depend on who wins this year’s NBA championship. According to the sportswear company, the shoes will be released in the course of the several upcoming months. So, you shouldn’t expect the whole collection to drop at once. If there is a style that you like you have to keep your eyes open for the launch date. The first one that will be available is the Kobe 1 Proto “Final Seconds” that drops on April 14 and it will cost $175. Moreover, the last sneaker is Nike’s Air Force 270 “Gold Standard” which will launch on June 14 for $170.
