Converse Debuts A Line Of Well Worn Sneakers For Hipsters
The collection of high-top and low-tops feature a distressed effect that gives them a broken-in look.
Converse has introduced a new line of sneakers that feature a premium washed canvas that has been extensively treated for a pre-worn, broken-in look. The Well Worn collection is available in high-top and low-top styles in a range of colors, with a suggested retail price of $65-$70.
Targeted at those who want a little more street cred than fresh new sneakers provide, they have a distressed effect that boasts character and delivers an easygoing feel.
To celebrate the launch of the Well Worn collection, there will be a gig series supporting the brand’s manifesto “Shoes Keep It Clean, Sneakers Get Dirty.” The three free shows in April at London’s 100 Club shine a spotlight on bands that work hard to bring their music to the world, and features The Cribs, Doom, Ghostface Killah, Gallows, and more.
