Schott NYC x Converse - CT All Stars Leather 'Jacket'

Converse made this Chuck Taylor All Star in collaboration with Schott NYC. Based on the first and original motorcyle jacket Schott produced in 1928. The collaboration fuses the "Perfecto" jacket with the Chuck Taylor All-Star.

Converse hooked up with leather experts at Schott NYC to bring a different flavour to these All Stars.  These Cons feature a patchwork of premium suede motorcycle jacket leather and butter soft suede mid-soles. Also featured is a heavy-duty zip on the heels and zips under the laces. Nice details like a quilted lining, snaps on the tongue, 'All-Star' embossed in the leather on the ankle and the Schott label sewn in the lining.

These Schott x All-Stars are available in limited quantities exclusively at Converse First String retailers like HUF San Francisco. Retail price is a little more than the average Chuck Taylor, but the premium lux styling will make it feel worth the coin.
