Renowned for his knack of re-inventing, re-engineering and re-invigorating classics Daikia Suzuki has applied his menswear magic to the legendary Converse one Star shoe. “For Nepenthes/Engineered Garments, we have played around with the idea of twisting ideas together, creating negative/positive’s in one pair of shoes. In attempting to create something new, we thought it would be best to start the relationship by revisiting the past and melding the first four (after that “Leather All Star”) models into one,” notes Suzuki. “Doing them all at once will have memories for some, seeing them come out when they did and for others it will be a lesson on how things can change subtly over time. For myself it represents my youth, memories I hold dear.”
Arriving at Nepenthes NYC today and at Converse.com and in store from October the 5 the One Star is a vailable in four premium leather colourways including Olive, Navy, White, and Black. Each of the EG shoes are leather-lined with an Engineered Garments branded logo illustrated on the shoe’s sock-liner and housed in Engineered Garments premium packaging with tonal cotton laces.
