Converse x Sneakersnstuff One Star Pack
Converse and Sneakersnstuff have collaborated on some fresh versions of the One Star. The Converse x Sneakersnstuff One Star Pack brings on some exclusive camo print to the classic silhouette.
SNS has designed and released quite a few iconic and timeless collaborations with many different brands throughout time.
Sweden’s finest is showing no signs of slowing down, especially after the opening of their NYC location. Their next project is now unveiled and the chosen model is the Sneakersnstuff x Converse One Star “ERDL”.
Camo Print Forever:
Sustaining the craving to rejuvenate a classic camo print, a true pillar when it comes to streetwear in general, the One Star is now introduced with a fearless modern twist on ERDL, a print developed by US Army Engineer Research and Development Laboratory in the 60s.
We know that camo prints may sound mundane as it has been done over one million times. Although, you shall find out that Sneakersnstuff’s take on the military-inspired print is portrayed through texture and color instead.
Peter Jansson, one of SNS‘s co-founder, states that «We wanted to elevate the print by stitching leather together in a slow, unnatural process. We do not believe in taking shortcuts. This is not fast fashion. The collection is thorough, genuine and displays a high level of craftsmanship.»
Converting conventional graphics utilization of the camo print, the silhouette displays a unique patchwork of suede and leather, focusing on two different color palettes: the classic “canteen” and a “deep lavender” colorway, which will be exclusively available at Sneakersnstuff.
But that’s not all. Sneakersnstuff goes a step further. Not only the Converse One Star “ERDL” is releasing, but it is also launched altogether with a small clothing capsule collection.
During its launch, you will be able to purchase the Converse x Sneakersnstuff GORE-TEX® Coach Jacket, delivered in a wind and water-resistant fabric with silkscreen reflective details/logos.
Moreover, together with the One Star and with the GORE-TEX® Coach Jacket, a deep lavender Converse Essentials long sleeve and short sleeve tee shall drop featuring army inspired spec graphics and dual-branded logos.
The full range will be available by April 12th all Sneakersnstuff locations and online.

It is odd to think that suede on a shoe was, a lifetime ago, considered a daring play. In fact, some silhouettes have already retired. Others, just like the One Star, made the Converse All Star canvas and rubber recipe look rather obsolete.
What we mean is that by 1974, Converse dropped everything and only added a star to the side vamp of the shoe. Even though they truly smashed it back then, the One Star was removed from all retailers one year after for an indefinite time.
It took a while for the comeback. The One Star hit the shelves yet again in 1993. By then, thoroughly set up with the rise of the grunge and skateboarding movements.
Third time’s a charm, we say. 2017 marks the “real” return of the One Star, and its timing seemed just impeccable, yet again. Bringing the mid-70s aesthetics to the streets, it is truly up to us to decide and discover what type of impact the silhouette will have this time around.
