With a nod to the Chuck Taylor All Star sneakers, the Converse Essentials collection not only looks better with age and wear, but becomes even softer with each wear. Each piece includes fabric that fades naturally with long-term wear, durable stitching and a managed shrinkage fit that remains the same throughout its lifespan.

To introduce the Converse Essentials collection, Converse will drop a limited-edition Converse Essentials x Fragment collection, designed by Fragment founder Hiroshi Fujiwara. Fujiwara’s design and artwork are renowned in the world for it’s grimy and raw textures, so it’s no surprise that the collection is one that gets better and better with time. Fade outs are awesome tomboys! Where you been?
Hiroshi himself has taken meticulousness to the next level. The man has personally tested this philosophy by washing his collection for the equivalent of 12 years. Yes, 12 years! The result of all that work is a vintage garment that celebrates the construction while showing the possibilities of the Essentials collection.
Elevated construction puts a twist on these tried and true silhouettes, for styles that consumers can wear day in and day out, which is good news for our practical tomboys looking for tomboy style that is fuss-free and easy to wear.
Details such as muted nickel YKK zipper hardware offsets the monochrome look, and the eyelets are matte with a rubberized touch for an elevated hand feel. Flat seam construction throughout eliminates bulk and discomfort, and the pre-washed material allows for minimal shrinking with men’s pieces cut for a modern fit allowing for maximum movement and layering.
