When it comes to sneaker brands, Converse is about as timeless as it gets. The Chuck Taylor All-Star is still as blindingly popular now as it was when it first became a household name in the 1950s. Plus, sneakers like the Jack Purcell and the One Star are sleek-looking silhouettes that are adored by millions across the globe. Converse has plenty of these classic silhouettes in simple colors, but the brand’s mass-market popularity means that everyone and their mom also wears them.
However, in recent years, Converse has wooed streetwear fanatics and finicky sneakerheads with limited-edition kicks worthy of every ounce of hype they generate. Whether it’s collaborations with beloved labels like Undercover and JW Anderson or just classic sneakers in extremely style-forward colorways, the brand has managed to create a number of limited-edition kicks that drive fashion insiders wild. We’re talking about shoes that you’ll want to wear the second you get ’em—and we’ve rounded up eight of them so you can have the next-level sneaker game your summer deserves.
