Tenue de Nîmes & Chuck Taylor
You remember Tenue de Nîmes? We did a little post about their button up’s a while back, real nice looking shirts. We’ve seen some other things from them recently but nothing that caught our eye for what we thought might interest you. These blue Chuck’s are reminiscent of the Comme des Garcons x Lewis Leathers Sneakers that came out last year.
Asking the legendary denim experts, the Manabe family from Okoyama in Japan, owners of the Momotaro brand and Rampuya dyeing factory, if they would be able to indigo-dye a limited amount of 50 pairs. Tenue de Nîmes has put together this collection of special, hand-dyed, natural indigo, customized Converse Chuck Taylor All Star shoes that will be released during Amsterdam Fashion Week this summer.
Because of the irregular composition of natural indigo, the shoes all have a different signature. Each shoe is unique thanks to the traditional craft of hand-dyeing and the use of natural ingredients throughout the process. Every shoe is decorated with a Tenue de Nîmes cross on the inner sole. The shoes are sold in a Ramupya natural cotton bag and are exclusively available at Tenue de Nîmes in Amsterdam for €89,90.
