converse x stüssy cvo ls mid

converse have been on fire this year

some great joint ventures throughout 2012
including the upcoming sneakersnstuff lovikka all stars,
some amazing missoni all stars and auckland racers, the footpatrol pro leathers
the schoeller neoprene things and of course the continuing collaborations
with stüssy.

i showed some of my previous converse x stüssy pick ups a few 
months back

then last week i got the latest collaborations...

the converse x stüssy cvo ls mid
what do you reckon ?
they make me think of that stupid fosters advert with those stupid australians.
smart / casual

i really rate these. they are crazy comfortable and although they are
a bit skatey and are trainers, to me they do look quite smart
they are in a quality black suede with some soft black leather trims
and black waxed laces.
being a first string release, they also came with laces in a sail colour
the same colour as the outsole.

stüssy branded insoles are a nice touch
three different fonts.

as ever, it's all about the details
nice branded heel tabs plus leather reinforced heels and ankles
for all that skateboarding i do.

i do like the stüssy logo printed in silver just below the laces
yes, that's a nice touch.

as ever
bringing heat to the streets of n7

they also come in a brown / burgundy colourway.

what ?
