A$AP Mob member A$AP Nast has teamed up with Converse for a collection of footwear and apparel in his unique style.
The drop incorporates materials of various textures, patterns and understated shades inspired by Nast’s favorite period of design history.
“Being born and raised in Harlem, I’m excited to drop my [first] design collaboration in my city. Fashion has always been a priority whether expressed through my style or rap– I am telling a story,” the rapper said. “As a young creative, Converse gave me the opportunity to share my vision, passion, and personal inspiration of a timeless era through the collection.”
The Converse x A$AP Nast collection features the brand’s iconic One Star and Chuck Taylor All Star 70, as well as a custom Converse T-shirt.
The One Star sports a corduroy upper in an “Arrowhead” colorway, as well as extra fuzzy laces, while the iconic star is done in a deep Red Dahlia leather. The Chuck Taylor All Star 70 features a plaid outer with two interchangeable fuzzy laces in Egret and Greener Pastures. There’s also the phrase “SOMEWHERE IN MID-CENTURY” appears on both the sneaker’s sidewalls, as we reminder of the era that influences A$AP Nast’s creative direction. The same phrase is also displayed on the front of the T-shirt, which is available in Cream, Cardinal, and Dark Chocolate.
The limited Converse x A$AP Nast collection launches September 28 at 5pm EST, exclusively at the Foot Locker flagship in Times Square.
