Converse x Golf Le Fleur Gianno Suede
After previous collaborations on the One Star and Chuck 70, Tyler, the Creator’s Golf Le Fleur is getting ready for another fresh Converse release. The two iconic brands have joined forces to create and introduce an all new silhouette, the Gianno.
Arriving in colourways, Evergreen and Lavender Grey, the sneaker features interesting inspirations ranging from the chunky hiking shoe silhouette right up to the running and basketball sneaker designs. Along with its suede texture, the sneaker also features Golf branding located on the tongue and midfoot as well as co-branded insoles.
This was an opportunity to create a build that he could have ownership and creative input to. We worked to craft a design language for Tyler with nods to Converse DNA and heritage. The intent was to create something that felt contemporary and fresh, but maybe not necessarily something that looked outwardly ‘Converse’ at first sight.”
