The Odd Couple in Colorful Shoewear

When one thinks of the iconic zig-zag bright patterns of the Italian fashion house Missoni, it is doubtful the word “sneaker” would come to mind. For Spring 2010 though, expect to see the house’s signature prints and textiles adorning the Converse classic Chuck Taylor high-tops dubbed “Premium Chuck Hi Missoni.” Soon to be available at Missoni boutiques, the shoes will come in two color patterns—a darker hue consisting of blue, gray, and purple as well as a lighter hue in pink, turquoise, and white.
