Converse Don C ERX | Urban List

For everyone ready to move on from 90s everything in 2019, Converse has your back this month with another new spin on the ERX 260s due to drop this week.

In the 80s, the ERX was loved by NBA players and Guns n Roses frontman Axl Rose alike. It’s a classic, space boot style high top—with a flat sole and puffed up tongue like the adidas Centennial and the iconic Reebok Pumps.

This is Converse's second ERX collab with streetwear designer and former Kanye West tour manager, Don C—and you can expect a bit of on-trend animal print in his rework. As well as five new versions of the ERX sneakers, the head-to-toe capsule collection also includes hoodies, furry jackets, caps, track pants and tees. 

The collection is divided up into "animal"—lots of Don C's signature leopard and cheetah prints—and "metal", which is a nod to the convergence of rock and pop into its own subculture in the 80s (hello Guns n Roses). Expect gun metal studs. 

Get ready, it all drops this Sunday 13 January: exclusively online at Converse, with select elements available at JD Sports, Culture Kings and Footlocker.
