BornxRaised & Converse Bring Venice-Inspired Sneaker Pack and Pop-Up to LA
The Los Angeles streetwear bastions at BornxRaised have teamed up with lifestyle footwear imprint Converse for a fresh capsule collection paying homage to Venice, California and its long-lasting history. Their collaborative “On The Turf” pack includes two new iterations of the Jack Purcell silhouette; both dressed in a soft coat and drenched in Black and Camel hues. Also known as the “Pony Hair Pack,” these spiffy new kicks offer a street-meets-suave aesthetic to your sneaker collection (and a little giddy-up to your step if you know what we’re getting at).
Don’t you worry animal activists: these sneakers are made from faux pony hair. While the upper and “On the Turf” tongue are blanketed by the false fur, the tonal bumper, toecap, and BornxRaised-branded counter heel sport a textured rubber material. Keeping it clean and cohesive, both Purcell’s receive a white midsole and tonal outsole unit. In addition to the February 3rd shoe release, the two streetwear collaborators are holding a pop-up in no other than Los Angele’s Venice Beach Boardwalk on the 2nd. Stop by if you’re in town, or cop online the following day online.
