The SAK x Converse First String collaboration continues at the highest level of craft…

Just to refresh your minds on this Spring Summer 2010 season partnership, when Ryusaku Hiruma married his Italian craftsmanship and eye for detail with Converse’s legacy brought through the Chuck Taylor, Jack Purcell and One Star. Together they created a collection of highly desirable and individual footwear.

The Japanese designer has been pursuing age-old Italian craftsmanship in Florence, Italy for some time now and wanted to pair its history with Converse’s rich tradition. “I wanted to bring together the history of Florence and Converse’s legacy,” says Ryusaku Hiruma, designer and founder of SAK. Re-designing and hand stitching the true Converse classics, he has given each shoe leather soles that resembles that of a luxurious dress shoe, and ink printed logos that gives them a playful feeling. Each shoe comes in natural shades of tan, off-white and black leather with hand cut logos.
