Following sneak peeks of the collab surfacing on social media on Monday night, Converse CONS and Polar Skate Co. offer a closer look and set a release date for their first collaborative effort and we couldn’t be more excited!
Taking each brands artistic direction into consideration, CONS and brand ambassador Pontus Alv (founder of Polar Skate Co.) deliver a seven piece collection featuring footwear and apparel pieces based on subtle designs and performance.
Starting with the footwear, the CONS CTAS Pro undergoes its latest rework with all of the shoes performance features in tact. Sitting on top of a clean white midsole and complementing toe cap, the collection offers black, natural and blue colour options with additional detailing in the happy/sad logo on the heel tab and inner tongue labels. Despite the subtle approach to the shoes design, there is no lack of technical features, with durable premium suede uppers, moulded multi-density Lunarlon sockliner for added comfort and impact protection, as well as traction rubber vulcanised outsole and waxed laces. The result is an extremely wearable, skate ready shoe.
Rounding off the collection is a complimenting apparel collection made up of four t-shirt designs, with illustrative back prints on white and heather grey crew necks and full-body abstract prints on black and white collared tees.
Polar Skate Co. founder Pontus Alv had this to say on the release:
“We are stoked to work with Converse CONS on our first collaborative collection, we’ve wanted to create a super-clean Chuck Taylor Pro in suede right from the beginning of working together. They skate really well, they look great and they last”
The Converse Cons X Polar Skate Co. capsule collection is available in limited quantities exclusively in Europe from Friday the 26th of September and will be released globally on Saturday the 4th of October. The collection will be available at the following stockists;
