Converse’s skate division have produced this clean dark navy CTS Mid, which is exclusive to the UK. The mid height skate shoe is coated in deep navy suede with All Star branding on the upper and heel of the off-white sole.
The understated take on red, white and blue was designed by Cons UK’s Neil Chester, and features a Union Jack branded lobster on a woven patch inside the tongue. The collar and tongue are padded with a memory-foam like material that will take the shape of the wearer’s ankles for added support. It’s a really simple piece, with just the right amount of branding, and ‘though I don’t often see Cons as a go to skate brand in the UK, moves like this could definitely change that.
As a final sweetener, each purchase comes with a free Converse tee. Check them out here, and pick up a pair from Consortium now.
