The Missoni x Converse collaboration continues. Longtime collaborators Converse and Missioni have teamed up yet again for Deck Slip-on sneaks inspired by the romantic essence of an artist and his travels along the Trans-Siberian-Manchurian rail line. And as you sneaker aficionados will testify, it is a collaboration made in heaven.

The Missoni x Converse collaboration has produced such great product as the Missoni x Converse spring 2016 Chuck Taylor high tops with zigzag pattern, the fall 2015 Missoni x Converse Chuck Taylor high tops with mint green and black vertical stipes, and the fall 2015 Missioni x Converse deck sneakers inspired by the Southern European and North African coast line. And that is just to name the current collaborations for 2015.

This current Converse Deck Star silhouette is enhanced with a thick, chunky space-dyed elasticated cashmere upper that is ideal for the colder weather that comes with the winter months. Premium satin is applied to the back of the sneakers to deliver a more elevated look while the colors reflect the darker, earthy hues of the landscape—the mountains, rivers and forests—that the artist passes on his journey.
