After debuting in the ’70s, the Auckland Racer was brought back by Converse in 2012. The runner, named after the city in New Zealand known for its popular jogging movement, quickly became a retro hit after receiving a knitted update as part of the Converse x Missoni collection. There have since been many other variations of the vintage sneaker, including a collaboration with streetwear elite Undefeated and a wild “Animal” pack. Inline releases may not receive as much notoriety, but they’re just as good as any other limited-edition style. Converse has been mostly associated with the Chuck Taylor and Weapon, but with the rising interest in runners and the jogging movement infiltrating sneaker culture in the States, the Auckland Racer is one to pay attention to.
