Though an avid fan of all-black make-ups, Japanese designer Takahiro Miyashita — known for his wildly popular Number (N)ine imprint as well as his newest line TheSoloist — exhibits pure eccentricity as his many designs beam with an imagination only known to him.
Resuming his role as a Converse collaborator, though in quite a departure from the side-laced Odessa and One Star, the creative is refining the imposing ERX 260 HI, giving it a composition of mostly dark panels and matte suedes alongside a giant mid foot zipper that foregoes traditional lace units for a fastener more akin to heavy duty boots.
Embossed branding sits along the entire lateral while the translucent blue outsole and embroidered tongue finish the piece with the “I AM THE SOLOIST” tagline.
The TheSoloist x Converse ERX 260 Hi drops this Saturday 16 March for the retail price of R1999 at our CPT and JHB stores via live raffle. CPT raffle starts at 9:30am and JHB starts at 9am. Remaining pairs will release online at 11am.
