Don C juxtaposes two packs for a new take on the revived classic

Following the launch of Converse’s first style-driven expression of the ERX this Fall, Converse and Don C release a second head-to-toe capsule featuring five ERX executions. Fascinated by the ERX through his own personal memories of the silhouette and love of the sport, Don C continues to leverage the 80’s silhouette’s cross-cultural, on and off court adoption, and remasters it for the present.

The collection play host to two juxtaposing ideals, “Animal” and “Metal”, crafted in unison and born from Don C’s encyclopaedic knowledge of basketball and his modern streetwear design ethos. Constructed to bring style to the forefront of function, the ERX boasts a renewed EVA midsole, while the upper – with all its panels -- and rubber cupsole mirror the originals from the 1980s.

The “Metal” pack offers three additional distinct ERX 260s in contrasting colour palettes, along with four-piece apparel and accessory set in the same tones, derived from the glam metal era. The craze, which developed at the convergence of 80s punk rock and pop genres, transformed the subculture’s styles into a new trend that helped define the time. Each ERX plays host to an assortment of multi-sized studs and distinct inflections that further elevate the silhouette through the lens of modern streetwear. Each is also adorned with an oversized “CONS” logo print on the tongue, lighting bolt graphics and multiple lace options.
