Future Classic: A new collaboration imagines the meeting point of Converse and Feng Chen Wang

Chinese designer Feng Chen Weng reinvents the classic Jack Purcell and truly makes it her own—weaving personal heritage and history into a bold, fashion- forward design.

In this collaboration, her name isn’t just branded on the shoe. It’s part of the construction. Enlarged Chinese characters that spell out “Feng Chen Wang” are layered on the stylish nubuck leather upper, bringing concept and function together beautifully. It’s a nod to her past. And a statement of how far she’s come.

Key features of the mid top sneakers include:

  • Multi-layered upper
  • PU coated nubuck leather
  • Enlarged Mandarin spelling of Feng Chen Wang
  • 3D printed lateral logo
  • Matte rubber foxing
  • Tonal stitching

The Converse X Feng Chen Wang sneakers will launch exclusively at Converse Sandton City and Shelflife including online at from Saturday, 22 August 2020.
