Both reminiscent of childhood, Converse and Sanrio's Hello Kitty collaborate for a collection that will definitely make their stylish fans nostalgic! Hello Kitty gets a street style makeover via Converse's most iconic designs: the Chuck Taylor All Star, the Chuck 70, and the One Star. This collab ultimately celebrates originality and self-expression, both of which are at the heart of the two brands.
All sneakers are unisex and have custom designed graphics, logos, and a polka dot printed lining; they also come with a second set of laces featuring the Hello Kitty print.
The Chuck Taylor All Star High Top, Converse's original basketball sneaker, gets a fresh look with a screen-printed Hello Kitty and friends embellished on the canvas upper and a peek-a-boo Hello Kitty on the sneaker's tongue. On its foxing tape, you'll also see “Say hello to me when you see me” printed on it. So cute!
Chuck Taylor All Star OX gets a bold revamp with multiple Hello Kitty faces printed on it. Look, the character is even wearing her trademark red bow!
Meanwhile, the Chuck 70 silhouette also features Hello Kitty's face on the canvas upper, plus an adorable red bow print on its toe cap and outsole.
The One Star version comes with a luxe suede upper that offers a different feel. Converse adds subtle yet iconic elements of Hello Kitty merged with the key visual features of the original One Star.
This collab's One Star also gets a red bow and a set of whiskers printed on it, with Hello Kitty's face peeking from the back of the pair. Plus, it also comes in pink!
Apart from the sneakers, Converse also has an apparel collection that includes a white and red short-sleeved football tee and a black pullover hoodie.
The tee is emblazoned with Hello Kitty's face and the Converse logo on the left chest, plus a cute red bow on the sleeve.
A Hello Kitty chenille patch rests on top of the hoodie's kanga pocket. It also features an oversized bow on the hood, and the words "Hello Kitty" are printed on one sleeve.
The collection officially launches today, August 16, 2018. Locally, the apparel collection will be available in the Glorietta 2 and Greenbelt 5 stores, while the sneakers will be available in select Converse stores and department stores nationwide.
