Marimekko Kicks It With Converse

Marimekko, Finnish textile designers known for their bold patterns, have teamed up with Converse to create a beautiful line of women’s shoes that I’m pretty jealous about. These complex patters are taken from Marimekko’s back catalog, including Tarha from 1963, Pikkusuomu from 1965 by Annika Rimala and Kirppu from 1980 by Maija and Kristina Isola. I think these patterns are a perfect compliment to the shoes, people would definitely notice you walking down the street. I’m just upset I can’t get those high tops in a men’s size! Check out the video above and the shoes below. The collection should be coming out some time this month at both Converse and Marimekko stores.
