Converse First String x Hudson's Bay Company Jack Purcell LTT Ox
Converse have teamed up with North America's longest continually operated company Hudson's Bay, in a collaboration which sees the two icons reworking the Jack Purcell LTT Ox. The uppers consist of Canadian clothier's trademark wool point blanket stripes giving a textured aesthetic. The fabric itself was dyed and dried before use on the shoe, to accentuate the colours. Threaded stitching and antique brass eyelets finish this refreshing collaborative effort.
