Schott NYC Leather Jacket and Converse Chuck Taylor, 2 famous brands with deep roots in American culture. Schott unveiled in 1928 the first leather motorcycle jacket, which became the “Perfecto” in the 1950s, an iconic symbol of rebellion. Since 1908 Converse produces shoes nearly ubiquitous in American life. A collaboration between these 2 companies takes the original motorcycle jacket and fuses its design with the original Converse Chuck Taylor All Star shoe.
Rugged look, heavy duty rear zip entry zips under the laces and a patchwork of motorcycle jacket leather, make these shoes something you can use to ride, much better than the garden-variety canvas versions! The shoe comes complete with a quilted lining; snaps on the tongue and a leather rand with a clean and sharp emboss detail. The Schott label is sewn discreetly inside the shoe and the classic. Quite expensive, but will probably last many riding seasons. Available December 15th at your Converse retailers.
