Converse might be an iconic American brand, but considering its collaborative series with Missoni and Gienchi’s studded homage, it’s safe to say that Italian designers love the shoe as well. Now, for the Summer 2013 season, innovative streetwear retailer Slam Jam is joining the list of Converse-loving Italians with the Slam Jam x Converse Jack Purcell Sneaker.
In a celebration of summer style, Slam Jam has updated the classic Jack Purcell silhouette with vintage nautical-inspired details including a red snap button closure and white rubber toe with a red “smile” design. As part of the Converse First String line, the sneakers feature high-quality authentic materials such as a durable water-repellent navy canvas upper. Unique touches include the phrase “Summer Journey” (a play on the Slam Jam initials) embroidered on the sneakers’ tongue. If you love Converse sneakers as much as the Italians do, this is the next pair to add to your closet starting May 13.
