Missoni Teams With Muzungu Sisters on Limited-Edition Loafers
After five Converse collaborations of zig-zag printed lace-up sneakers, Missoni's stepping out in a more dapper footwear direction. In partnership with Muzungu Sisters—an online shop dedicated to handmade products crafted by local artisans—Missoni's weaving their signature fabric atop CB Made in Italy's leather loafers.
The slightly shiny, Lurex-blend slippers are both more polished and pricey than those previous Converse kicks ($535 vs. $279 per pair). But they're also more dandy, like something out of a Slim Aarons book, or what George Clooney's girlfriend-of-the-moment would wear to yacht around his Italian lake house.
In real-people life, they'd look pretty great with summer basics, whether work outfits or barbeque-friendly cutoffs. The loafers' red, white and black palette is surprisingly versatile, while unlike strappy sandals, they don't mandate a pedicure. And sorta like a really fancy version of TOMS, 10 percent of the shoes' proceeds go to Small Steps Project, a charity that provides shoes for destitute children.
