Missoni x Converse: Introducing The Archive Project

By now Converse and Missoni are old partners, with five zig-zag printed sneaker collaborations tucked underneath their low-top laces and knit string bikini ties. And yet there's something entirely novel about the brands' sixth effort, which goes on sale later this week.

Instead of featuring new fabrics, the Converse sneakers in the Archive Project highlight discontinued prints from Missoni's past collections. Not only do they have throwback appeal, the sneakers also have limited edition cachet—really, truly—with only one pair sold per size (5 through 12) in each of the twenty styles.

Available exclusively at Paris' Colette this Friday, September 28, the vintage-inspired, collector's edition kicks aren't cheap (of course). But at 400 euros a pop (or about $520), they're still less expensive than most of the Isabel Marant and Lanvin sneakers on the Barneys' shoe floor—and have a much more interesting story to tell. Click through below to see them all, in each of their different personalities (my favorite's #6, with it's Full House-style '90s kitsch appeal, though #13 might be more versatile with my wardrobe).
