All my friends know i love converse but those r out of this world

Converse celebrated the conclusion of its Project (RED) collaboration 1HUND(RED) by sending it off on a high note: At the closing party, hosted by onetime RED shoemaker Lupe Fiasco and chef Marcus Samuelsson, the brand unveiled the last three shoes in the series, designed by United Bamboo, artist Terence Koh, and womenswear line Vena Cava, all of whom were in attendance. Both United Bamboo's and Koh's modified All Stars stack up against the best of the line. I could see UB's statement-loud bubbled canvas version becoming as sought-after as Hiroshi Fujiwara's iconic pair (also, incidentally, on display, both on platforms and on the feet of many of the editors present). Vena Cava's—for the ladies, but worth a look—sports a doodled-on Native American print that's equally flashy. via men style
