These First String releases from Converse use the ever classic Matchpoint Ox silhouette, but as always with Converse’ First String line numbers are limited and materials are at a premium level.
They feature a nicely contrasting soft leather lining and a vulcanised rubber ecru sole unit. Personally I find the use of ecru a much better colour on the soles of these old school gym type sneakers just because white is sometimes too harsh and these have a subtle ability to pull and outfit together. As you can see, the leather branding on the back of the sneaker is a nice touch and the simplistic characteristics of the Matchpoint Ox lends itself perfectly to your Spring/Summer wardrobe.
They come in two colours, grey and ‘denim’, and numbers are limited so you best hurry if you want to cop a pair. Both are available now from Oi Polloi for £90 a pop.
