Converse launches the Converse CONS First String Engineered Auckland Racer sneaker collection, a stylish update on a classic silhouette, modernized with an innovative Engineered Canvas Jacquard fabric that creatively reimagines the heritage Converse Canvas.
The sneaker features a one-piece upper construction of canvas fabric, woven with sophisticated, intricate patterns seamlessly integrated into one cohesive design for a slim, lightweight feel. This unique fabrication expresses multiple patterns with differing weave structures to highlight the redefined jacquard technique.
The Converse CONS First String Engineered Auckland Racer makes a contemporary statement for summer with five colors – the classic Red, White, and Navy are a stylish nod to Americana, Mint Leaf and Fiery Coral are bright coastal colors that invoke summer travel. The innovative engineered texture incorporates three weave patterns in one – standard, twill and basket weaves – and complements the streamlined silhouette with a speckled midsole and semi-transparent rubber outsole.
Branded with the iconic CONS Chevron prominently, the Converse CONS First String Engineered Auckland Racer also has a skeleton lining that keeps the sneaker ultra-light, and a marbled rubber sock liner that adds a shock of graphic contrast to the inside. They also include waxed round laces with reflective threading detailing, as well as an additional matching tonal lace.
