This is the first time that the footwear brand has joined forces with Barriers, which was founded by designer Steven Barter in 2015. Barter uses his pieces to honor key moments in Black history and for the label’s first-ever collection with Converse, he used the anti-slavery newspaper The North Star as inspiration behind the pieces. The collab will include a new iteration of the Converse Chuck 70 and Pro Leather silhouettes alongside a matching apparel collection featuring a pullover hoodie, a T-shirt, and shorts.
Readers will be able to cop the Barriers x Converse collection starting tomorrow at Barriersworldwide.com and in New York City. A wider release of the collab will take place on July 21 at Converse.com and at select Converse retailers. Retail pricing for the collection will range between $55 to $120.
