Converse and UNDFTD launched their collaboration with Foot Locker last week and we missed it! No worries. Thanks to magic of the internets and PR, we got our hands on some images from the event which included an exhibition of photographs by Shaniqwa Jarvis and a panel discussion on the origins of street style featuring Jarvis, Yego Moravia, Josh Peskowicz, Matt Sleep (of Converse) and Eddie Cruz (of Undefeated). DJ Soul provided the audio treats at the Hole in NYC, where the collection made its debut.
Titled BORN NOT MADE, the triple-tiered collabo between the retail giants aims to redefine American sports, athletics and street style through Converse’s iconic shoes. The collection features, fitteds, tees and kicks designed by Cruz and James Bond, going on sale at Foot Locker beginning Thursday March 29. If you’re itching to get your mitts on the collection earlier, you can pre-order online via FootLocker.com.
More of the collection and the evening’s festivities in the gallery below.
