Maison Martin Margiela hand-paints two Converse classics

These aren’t your parents Chucks. French avant-garde fashion house Maison Martin Margiela has put a twist on the classic Converse Chuck Taylor All Star and Converse Jack Purcell sneakers. The Converse shoes are each completely hand-painted in Maison Martin Margiela’s iconic white paint. Covering all canvas, eyelets, laces and soles, they naturally crack and shed their outer coat of paint to reveal the original colors beneath. The result is a one-of-a-kind shoe that transforms with use.

Maison Martin Margiela is known for reinventing volumes, modifying shapes, and changing the original use and movement of garments.

Both styles are available in four color heritage colors from the Converse archives: red, black, navy, and Margiela-exclusive vintage yellow, and are lined in premium off-white leather.

The Maison Martin Margiela Converse sneakers retail at $200.
