After its reintroduction earlier this year with the help of Fear Of God’s Jerry Lorenzo, Converse's Skidgrip is back with a rugged and rough outdoor-ready rendition in both low and high formats.
Coming to us in mismatched olive, safari, and biscotti colourways, both the low and hi-cut silhouettes are pieced together with subtly waxed duck canvas, cotton drills, and herringbone twills.
Converse’s Skidgrip was formerly called the Circular Vamp Oxford (CVO for short), and although it was released in 1910 it only really became something notable in the ’60s when its no-slip sole was favoured by many. In the ’80s, BMX, surfing and skateboarding cultures adopted the sneaker making the shoe particular popular in South California.
Pairs will release through our online store this coming Tuesday the 27th of October from 7am AEDT.
Sizes US7 through to US13 (whole sizes only) will be available in both the high and low variations for $150AUD.
