Tyler, The Creator’s Latest GOLF le FLEUR* Converse Collaboration Could be a Chuck Taylor

So far, Tyler, The Creator‘s ongoing GOLF le FLEUR* collaboration with Converse has seen a number of reworks of the One Star silhouette. But, according to a new leak, his next release with the label could see him take on the Chuck Taylor for an understated new design.

Whereas most of the previous release have featured a bright color palette, the new design comes in a muted brown colorway. The classic Chuck Taylor canvas upper is replaced by a hopsack-like material. The sneaker’s upper is then finished with black detailing, including a GOLF le FLEUR* logo on the tongue and branding in reverse on one side. Lastly, the Chuck Taylor features the collaboration’s signature flower-print sole. There’s no news on when, or if, this collaboration will be releasing, but keep checking back for more information.
