The Converse ‘First String’ Collection continues to produce some of the most highly-detailed, luxurious designs we have seen from the age-old brand. This winter, Converse will release a Schott Leather version of its staple Converse Chuck Taylor “Leather Jacket” makeup. Schott Leather has been apart of America’s fashion since 1913 much like the iconic Converse Chuck Taylor model (both made their debuts in the early 1900s).
This Converse Chuck Taylor “Leather Jacket” features the premium Schott Leather on the majority of the upper in black. One of the more interesting features on this shoe is the monochromatic zipper design that appears throughout the midfoot and on the heel giving it a nice makeup attribute. Lastly, this Chuck Taylor is finished with brown Converse branding on the sides and a white, vulcanized rubber sole. These will retail at $200 and release exclusively at Converse First String retailers on December 15th, 2010.
