Marimekko Give Converse A Patterned, Cheeky Makeover

We would give anything to be able to break out a pair of classic Chuck Taylor All Stars and take a stroll down the street without getting slush in our shoes. We are getting closer to spring, at least according to Puxatony Phil, so here's another can't-wait-for-sunshine-to-enjoy-these shoes. With the help of Finnish design house, Marimekko, Converse has announced Converse ♥ Marimekko. The fun, bold geometric patterns that make Marimekko so popular now grace your favorite sneaker. Check out the video on the Converse site to get a glimpse at the company behind the playful patterns with Marimekko Design Manager Noora Niinikoski, and browse the slideshow below to view all the pattern options.
