At the 2019 Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival, Converse and Tyler, The Creator officially launched the second chapter of Converse x GOLF le FLEUR with a new signature shoe, the Gianno.
With a collective intent to push the boundaries of footwear design further, Tyler and the design team at Converse for nearly two years to craft a new concept, experimenting with color, fit and proportion, creating a totally new silhouette from the ground up.
Intentionally crafted to maximize the usage of color and texture, following its initial release the silhouette adopts brightness as its mode of expression. The two new colorways will be familiar to followers of Golf Wang: Parfait Pink (a vibrant hue within Tyler’s favorite color family – Light Pink) and Skylight Blue.
The Gianno is wholly created from Tyler’s imagination: it draws influence from retro footwear, like running and basketball silhouettes, but introduces soft lines derived from his signature flower motif to result in something unconventional and multidimensional.
A combination of style and function, the Gianno is defined by its architected combination of leather, suede and mesh layers, its sculpted upper with a mini debossed fleur motif and its lugged outsole with a geometric tread for grip.
Look for the Converse x Golf le Fleur Gianno styles to release on April 16th at select retailers, Golf Wang, and Converse.com. The retail price tag is set at $130 USD each.
Release Date: April 16, 2020
