After debuting on the runway last June during A-COLD-WALL*’s SS20 menswear presentation, the capsule collection – comprised of two unique articulations of Converse footwear (the Chuck Taylor All Star Lugged and ERX) and two uniquely devised track suits.

The designs follow ACW’s hallmarks, asymmetry, material exploration and subdued color, and in honoring Converse’s heritage, Ross ties a thread through from childhood to the maturation of his brand.

With the Chuck Taylor All Star Lugged, Ross translates his personal Black British Caribbean experience, Converse’s history and his design sensibilities to find a new, rugged form for the shoe.

“One of my earliest memories of Converse is owning a pair of navy All Stars at age 14,” Ross recalled. “I was traveling to the Caribbean a lot and took those shoes on numerous hikes and across mountain trails. So, the experience of my childhood affected this idea of changing the All Star into something that is more hard-wearing. You have a mix of cultural experience overlaid with A-Cold-Wall*’s opinion on how footwear should operate.”
