converse x undefeated jack purcell

let me show you a new pair of shoes in my crate.
i was fortunate enough to be given these in shanghai a couple of weeks ago

they are part of the undefeated for converse jack purcell collection for summer 2012
pretty sweet eh ?
they have a terry-cloth lining and insole. very comfortable.

 proper old school badges on these
and i approve of the changes that undefeated brought to this classic shoe.
( the simple red and navy blue rubber stripes on the midsoles )

 undefeated didn't mess with the signature jack purcell toe-smile
i think my nan would have called these 'bumper boots'

very nice gum outsoles with red, white and navy branding
woah... not bad !

another nice touch from undefeated is the branded heel pull-tab
with the 5-strike logo embossed on black leather

these lads even come with a special sew-on patch
these are a limited release available at converse first string retailers.

i reckon they are perfect for the summer ( leave it )
simple, but with some stylish touches.

maybe i'll leave the af-1's in their boxes for a few weeks.
maybe i'll make this a converse summer* ?
bringing heat to the streets of n7

* what summer ?
