Since 1908, Converse has been one of the most influential and respected shoe companies on the planet. The Converse "Chuck Taylor" is one of the best selling shoes of all time and continues to be an example of timeless American style.
When Stüssy Japan was looking to collaborate on a classic shoe silhouette for the 2011. Stüssy Deluxe collection, the similarly shaped Converse Pro Ox model was a natural choice. The project was well received and eventually led to updated colorways for a 2012 release. Shortly thereafter, the Stüssy and Converse relationship finally expanded to the USA with two stylish models offered just in time for summer.
The Stüssy x Converse Elm and Sea Star shoes are just the beginning of a relationship based on mutual respect and classic style. Stüssy x Converse... Always Fresh!!
