Less than a year since his first collaboration with Converse, Tyler, The Creator returns for a fifth instalment of his project entitled Golf le Fleur*. The One Star is yet again the crux of the collaboration, with the now synonymous star flower motif on the side. Capturing the imagination of today’s youth, Tyler, The Creator’s flamboyant flair is a hard sight to miss. His exciting use of colours and edgy charisma is an unrivalled match for the counterculture classic One Star. In typical fashion, this new collection is an array of bright and playful hues.

Following his initial few years with Californian company Vans, Tyler has been given room to bloom with Converse and their long-standing history. Revitalising the One Star yet again for a 21st century spin, the Golf le Fleur* project has reminded the culture of the legacy the One Star has cemented since its initial stardom as a short lived ‘70s basketball sneaker. The year was 1974, Converse was up against tough competition with neighbouring brands releasing some of the most iconic shoes alive today. Puma had the Clyde, Nike had the Blazer and adidas had the Superstar, meanwhile Converse was still scoring strong with the Chuck Taylor. The new One Star model stood out with its feature single star and decent baseline offering of seven colours and black or white leather iterations. One year later in 1975, production ceased and the One Star was soon overshadowed by a new court favourite - the Converse Pro Leather. Almost 15 years went by without mention of the One Star until the late ‘80s when Japanese collectors, skateboarders and a hip hop heads started digging up vintage pairs. Converse caught wind of this migration, and in 1993, perfectly timed around the growing grunge movement, put the coveted classic One Star back on shelves. Endorsed by skateboarders and rock stars such as Guy Mariano and Kurt Cobain, the One Star welcomed a whole new audience of youthful, free-thinking individuals.

The unisex Converse Golf le Fleur* One Stars will be priced at $159.95 AUD each | Available in Men's US sizing 5-12 (no half sizes).

The collection will be available at QVB (NSW), QVM (VIC) and online this Friday 1st of June at 9 A.M (AEST).
