Fashion designer John Varvatos has teamed up with Converse to produce a new line of sneaks called the Converse Chuck Taylor Zip Hi.

John Varvatos was previously the recipient of GQ’s prestigious “Designer of the Year” award in 2007 and his work at Calvin Klein and Ralph Lauren has witnessed notable success.

This is not the first time Varvatos is working with Converse, having produced numerous designs for the company since 2001. However, the new Chuck Taylor Zip Hi is definitely one of his most inspired works to date.

The shoe comes with a leather black upper, matching black leather laces and a vintage treated white sole.  In addition to that, it also has zippers around the mid-ankle panel, and a fashionable button situated at the top of the tongue.  For approximately $170 USD, you can get yourself a pair via Concepts.
