Converse and French fashion house Maison Martin Margiela have collaborated for the first time on a footwear collection. Chuck Taylor All Star and Jack Purcell sneakers are completely hand-painted in iconic white paint.

White Paint-Dipped Sneakers Crack To Reveal Hidden Colors Underneath

Mixing all-American and avant-garde style, these shoes crack over time as they are worn, revealing one of four colors underneath the paint. All of the canvas, eyelets, laces and soles are covered until they naturally crack shed their outer coat. Matt Sleep, Converse senior First String designer, said:

Converse is thrilled to partner with Maison Martin Margiela. The collection perfectly embodies each brand’s spirit of individuality and self-expression unifying Converse and Margiela’s conviction of unleashing creativity.

The available styles are based on heritage colors from the Converse archives: red, black, navy, and Margiela-exclusive vintage yellow, and they are lined in premium off-white leather.

The Converse Maison Martin Margiela sneakers will be available for purchase globally this month at Margiela stores, and at select Converse First String retailers for $200. You can check out a teaser video for the collection below:
