Though Patta and Converse are certainly the bigger weights among the three names, Amsterdam-based Experimental Jetset takes the reins on the creative direction and imbues the collection with their simple mantra “turning language into objects”.
Specifically, Experimental Jetset expounds on the concept of psychogeography and rejects prescriptive directions often deployed through cities as signage. Instead, the studio propounds that it is the wandering journey that matters and not the destination — thus the ambivalent arrows that point towards opposing ways. “STILL THE MODERN WORLD” is a recurring phrase printed throughout the collection, suggesting that modernity is rooted in the rejection of pointed direction.
This creative take is overlaid on classic Patta staples—Coaches Jackets, Hooded Sweaters, Graphic T-Shirts and Crewneck sweats—as well as Converse’s Chuck 70 Hi. Outfitting the classic silhouette in an all-white canvas, complementary blue and red arrows point down on the sneaker’s lateral side but inverses on the medial profile.
To match these graphics, the laces are also offered in the same shade of scarlet and blue. Interlocked “Ps” are printed prominently on the right as a nod to the collection’s moniker “Patta Psychogeographic Practice”. In matching font, the tongue sports phrases like “To walk is to lead — to read is to walk”. To solidify Patta and Converse’s involvement, labels on the heels are branded with both brands’ logos. The accompanying shoe box is also an art piece in its own right — crowded on its exterior is Experimental Jetset’s visual language art and the two-tone arrows.
What’s the difference between Converse All Star and One Star?
While the All Star originated as a basketball shoe, the One Star has its origins in skating. Thicker soled and often made of a material other than canvas, the One Star styles are a more modern take on the classic Converse styles being updated in new materials and patterns.
Is Converse One Star good for skating?
The Converse website recommends customers size down in their All Star and Chuck 70 silhouettes however we would still recommend staying true to size. Unless you have narrow feet, we don’t recommend sizing down in Converse.
