Tyler, The Creator’s collection flew off the shelves this past summer; here’s another chance to grab the Golf Le Fleur* kicks from DTLR.
American rapper, Tyler, The Creator, teamed up with Converse to create these original suede sneakers. The most significant addition to the classic One Star silhouette is a shooting flower on either side of the shoe, and if you look closely you can see One Star’s signature star inside it. The same flower was featured in his summer collection although in a less prominent way: it outlined the star in stitching. This time Tyler chose to show the emblem in a 3D patch in blue on the “Jolly Green” and white on the “Solar Power” colorways. The neutral-toned “Vanilla” color was selected to complement a more subdued look. A Golf Le Fleur* embossed tongue, all white bottoms, and a bright floral outsole complete these Flower Boy album inspired kicks.
The accompanying graphics show legs protruding through walls, the sneakers on their feet. These pictures symbolize individuality and creativity, particularly when it comes to men’s self-expression. Flowers are not usually associated with men, but these male-geared sneakers celebrate them. The photos illustrate how together, Tyler and Converse break free of the mold and embrace full self-expression.
The shoes first arrived in select stores in Seoul, South Korea a few weeks ago and will be introduced in America this week. The Golf Le Fleur* collection will be available at DTLR November 2nd.
