This month, Converse will be releasing limited-edition colorways of the Auckland Racer as part of its "First String" collection. The theme behind "First String" is top-notch craftsmanship and authenticity, which translates into a super limited run of sneakers.
The Converse CONS Auckland Racer will be offered in five different colorways and each is equipped with a one-piece upper constructed of an Engineered Canvas fabric with jacquard detailing. The sleek, lightweight sneakers will be available in "White," "Fiery Coral," "Navy," "Mint Leaf" and "Red."
The "Fiery Coral" and "Mint Leaf" will be available this Friday, August 15, at Converse stockists like Bodega in Boston and Patta in Amsterdam. The three other colorways will be available later on August 22 exclusively at Converse stores in the U.S. Retail price for each sneaker is $120.
