The sartorially-inspired skate shoe that you never knew you needed.
Converse has dropped some absolutely wild collaborations over the past few months, but the one that's got everyone talking has got to be the Toya Horiuchi x Converse Loafer SK "Red Brown." Marking the Japanese graphic artist's second project with the All Star brand, this pairs keeps in line with her world-renowned sartorially-inspired aesthetic that's tailored specifically for the halfpipe. Interested? Then make sure you read on to find out everything that you need to know.
Boasting an antique red leather construction, while these look like a pair of classic dress shoes from a distance, the double-taped rubber midsoles make these more of a sneaker than anything else. Converse's iconic Chevron & Star logos are finely debossed around the heel, and the inside of the shoe is decked out in React SK technology for comfort and cushioning that's ready for anything. Of course, you can't talk about this coveted collab without mentioning the New York-branded gold plaques that nod to the city where Horiuchi is based.
Releasing on November 29th, 2022, the Toya Horiuchi x Converse Loafer SK Red Brown will be available in men's sizes for around $118 via Converse and select retailers.
