Meet the new Chuck Taylors.

Converse’s fall ’14 All Star Missoni collection is the latest partnership between the two brands, uniting their respective aesthetics on either end of the style spectrum.

In their eighth outing together, the Andover, Mass.-based sneaker brand and the Milan-based luxury label have amped up Converse’s premium limited-edition line called First String. They covered signature Chuck Taylor All Star and Chuck Taylor All Star Fancy in black and white, teal, purple and beige zig-zags.

Priced from $85-$100, the low and high-top options are available exclusively at Nordstrom beginning Aug. 4.
