The latest converse collaboration is between The Sneakersnstuff and Converse and it reportedly pays tribute to Erika Aittamaa, a Lovikka villager (a small village in Sweden) who began knitting mittens to help support her family. Crafted to withstand the extreme cold of the north, the mittens were knitted with local yarn, pre-washed for softness and spun to be twice as thick for added warmth. Today, over a century later, the Lovikka mitten has become an iconic staple of Swedish mountain culture and a true reflection of craft, culture and community. They launch on December 3rd and will be available exclusively at Converse First String retail destinations. Offered in unisex sizing 4 – 12, the shoes will retail for $90 and be available at Bodega (Boston), Colette (Paris), Hanon (Aberdeen), Sneakersnstuff (Stockholm and Malmö) and at Undefeated (Los Angeles).
