Converse has extended its range of collaborations partnering A$AP Nast for the reimagining of the classic Jack Purcell silhouette, as part of the Converse X A$AP Nast collection.
Known for this unmistakable style of his own, Tariq Devega, otherwise known as A$AP Nast, is an American model, hip hop recording artist and songwriter from Harlem, New York, best known as a member of the hip hop group, A$AP Mob. A$AP Nast is driven to seek and absorb new information, for which his curiosity has fused with his fashion and design concepts with hip-hop.
Having previously collaborated with Converse on multiple occasions, the duo are back yet again for a fresh take on the Jack Purcell silhouette from the Converse archives. This new-look sneaker features a utilitarian feel, which honours Nast’s love of the outdoors.
The overall design is a shoe that’s functional and durable, alongside the additional styling concepts for an everyday sneaker. The hero design element of this reimagined classic features heightened rubber overlays, adding a unique dimension to the silhouette’s heritage canvas upper.
The Converse X A$AP Nast collection is currently available exclusively at Shelflife stores, which retails for R1,599.95. Apparel for the range will also be available between R599.95 and R1,099.95.
