The "anti-aesthetic" revolution of an iconic brand

Discover the Converse x Midnight Studios collaboration  The anti-aesthetic revolution of an iconic brand

Midnight Studios, the streetwear brand founded by Shane Gonzales in 2014 and inspired by the 70s punk era, revolutionizes two iconic Converse models: Chuck Taylor All Star 70 and One Star.

"Converse is an essential sneaker to us, and to the many people who inspire us." - the designer explains -  "At Midnight Studios, we draw our inspiration from popular culture and music history and when we think of a timeless shoe that fits that description, (Converse) makes perfect sense." 

The "anti-aesthetic" approach to fashion by Gonzales turns the upper of the shoes upside down, putting the inside on the outside, creating two ultra-minimal sneakers in unbleached natural greige canvas.

Both are made in a cream white colorway with black details and are characterized by elements such as PAXAR label and duty tags, traditionally present in a shoe, positioned on the outside and vice versa, as for the patch that is turned inside. Industrial details, printed laces with double branding and full-length rubber sole unit complete the look. 

The Midnight Studios X Converse pack is available from June 15th at selected Converse retailers for $120 for Midnight Studios X Converse Chuck Taylor and $110 for Midnight Studios X Converse One Star.
