The legendary rubber soles of Converse All Star is hitting its 100th-year anniversary this year and it has partnered with Alber Elbaz for a capsule collection to celebrate the momentous ocassion.

That means, the street sneakers are about to get a luxe treatment through the hands of the former Lanvin designer Alber Elbaz, all while maintain its signature rubber soles.

Featuring 7 unique designs, the Alber Elbaz x Converse 2017 "Avant" sneakers combine the All Star's timeless design with exotic animal prints and metallic sparkles.

This is a follow-up collection from its first collaboration in early March 2017, that saw a series of Converse sneakers in Alber's scribbles and cartoons.

It's definitely a collection not to be missed and it will be launched worldwide on 25th September 2017. Our favourite is definitely the silver bedazzled pair with a black satin bow on top!
