Nigel Cabourn is an all time favorite for us here at End and we think this collaboration with sneaker legends Converse is something really special.
With everything that he does, Nigel is able to incorporate an insight into the kind of design that stands the test of time and arguably, there is no footwear company that embodies this idea more than Converse, with their iconic designs remaining largely unchanged throughout its history.
It is this reverence for historically significant designs that has set Nigel’s designs apart, having amassed a personal collection of over 4000 original pieces, his expertise extends as far into vintage military issue apparel as it does into classic sportswear.
Taking inspiration from both of these styles, Nigel has created this modern take on a classic military plimsole in collaboration with Converse’ high end First String division, creating a brand new take the Chuck Taylor silhouette.
These classically styled, low cut precursors to the modern training shoe are constructed with all of the expert knowledge of both parties and boast a whole host of authentic detailing.
Launching here at End on the 21/06/2013, take a closer look at this latest round of collaboration between Nigel Cabourn and Converse in our Launch section.
