It is a known fact that Converse and Marimekko teamed up for a small spring line. Since the items had a lot of success, they decided to come up with a new, larger collection for the fall. If you are sad because summer went by so fast, you can be sure that this collection will make you smile.
Just as in case of the previous collection, the main focus of the two companies has been to use eclectic prints that draw the attention of people in an instant. If you don’t mind being in the center of attention and you are looking for some comfortable shoes, this is the way to go.
What to Expect?
The two companies decided to “upgrade” some of the older models, such as Chuck Taylor All Star Hi, Chuck Taylor All Star Platform, and Chuck Taylor All Star Ox both for men and women. This new line is dominated by vivid and bright autumn colors. However, if you aren’t a big fan of colorful shoes, you can be sure that you will find a few slightly conservative ones that you will like.
The influence of Marimekko Company is quite obvious, especially because of the new prints that were introduced into the lines. The most specific prints include MaijaLouekari, MaijaIsola, KatsujiWakisaka, and Fujiwo Ishimoto.
In case you have a playful mood, you might want your shoes to reflect this mood. In such a situation you may want to consider the Unikko print that comes with a poppy print and the Pisaroi print which comes with colorful raindrops.
If you are looking for something more subtle, the Suo print, which means swamp, might be perfect for you or the Piekana print which features rough-legged buzzards. For added visual interest you might also like the Mustakottarainen print, which means black starling. These add a splash of color to your look without being too much.
The best thing about the collection is that you don’t have to wait long before you can get your hands on the new items: they are already available. You can find them at selected Marimekko stores, retail outlets and in the online stores. Their price is of about $70-$75.
Having some new sneakers are a great way to prepare for the cold season and this way you can make sure that you will still have some colors left in your wardrobe.
