Converse and Marimekko teamed up for a new collection. After an interesting yet small Marimekko Converse spring 2013 sneakers line, the two brands have decided to put together a new line for the fall/winter 2013. Sad to see summer go by so fast? The new Converse and Marimekko fall/winter 2013 sneakers can definitely put a smile on your face. Just like last time, the two brands focused on eclectic prints which instantly attract attention, so if you're looking for comfy statement shoes, these cute kicks might just be the best choice for you. After all, swapping high heels for sneakers doesn't have to mean sacrificing visual interest for more comfort.
The seventh Converse x Marimekko sneakers collection brings into the spotlight brings interesting new versions of the Chuck Taylor All Star Hi, Chuck Taylor All Star Ox and Chuck Taylor All Star Platform styles for both men and women. “Rich autumnal colourways” dominate the new line, but even those who aren't keen on sporting ultra colorful prints can find a few cool options worth considering. The Marimekko prints by Maija Isola, Maija Louekari, Fujiwo Ishimoto and Katsuji Wakisaka bring an adorable perspective on some of the season's new prints.
For the times when you're feeling in a playful mood, the iconic Unikko print, (poppy), Maija Isola’s or Maija Louekari’s fun Pisaroi (rain drops) print might be a great choice. Looking for a subtle effect? Fujiwo Ishimoto’s Suo (swamp) and Piekana (rough-legged buzzard) or Katsuji Wakisaka’s Musta kottarainen (black starling) can bring a little visual interest to your new season outfits without being overwhelming.
Best of all, you don't have to wait to get your hands on these cool designs since the new line is already available. You can greet the new season in any of these funky new sneakers, which are available at selected Marimekko stores, premium retail outlets and online at converse.com or at marimekko.com. The sneakers from the new line currently retail for $70-$75.
