Nigel Cabourn's affinity for adventure inspires his latest work with Converse, a unique take on the classic Chuck Taylor 1970s Hi-Top. Inspired by the 1955 Trans Antarctic Expedition, the sneaker changes up the uppers and lining with rugged, military-spec L34 Ventile. The outside of the shoes are colored in navy blue while the inside is done up in RAF grey. Other details include laces inspired by mountain rope and a contrast rubber sole in grey.
