Converse is known for its tie-ups with top brands from Nike to fashion house Missoni.
It’s therefore no surprise that sooner or later the global shoe brand would release a version inspired by an airline.
And not just any airline either: Braniff International.
The now defunct airline was a trend-setter back in the day, injecting colour and style into commercial air travel with brightly painted 747s and an interchangeable flight attendant wardrobe in a rainbow of shades and vivid patterns.
Converse’s newest collection of All Stars and Jack Purcells sport the Braniff International motif and translate the airline’s bold colours into the look.
Converse Japan will reportedly release the range in July.
It’s bound to be a hit with collectors of airline memorabilia, if only to wear on the plane and reminisce about the good old days of air travel.
