SNS x Converse Lovikka All Star

December 5, 2012 | 0

Sneakersnstuff has teamed up with Converse yet again, this time to work on a special knitted styled Chuck Taylor All Star, labeled the Lovikka All Star.

The name for the shoe stems from Erika Aittamaa’s knitted mittens, which are considered an icon in Sweden, as the shoe makes use of a similar style. SNS has this to say about this collab with Converse:

Our project was a tribute to Erika and her mittens. We loved it and so did the people that got their hands on pair. Actually this is the most sought after sneaker that we’ve released and people have been asking for it since the first release. You could say that there was a public demand on a second drop of this project. So the saga continues, the Sneakersnstuff x Converse Lovikka All Star is back in a new colorway!

Almost everything is the same, the iconic mitten design is translated onto the vintage specialty Chuck Taylor sole, the accent embroidery and crafted details is there, the red/yellow/blue printed pinstripe on the midsole is there and the signature Lovikka tassel on the heel-stay is of course there! The only thing that we changed this time is the color, instead of off-white wool upper we went for an grey melange upper.

The countdown has begun, as the shoe is set to release next week, December 3, for $115 at Sneakersnstuff.
