Hot on the heels of their summer collaboration, Converse and Sanrio are back at it again with an ‘extra-kawaii’ range of Hello Kitty footwear, apparel and accessories.

The second wave of year from Converse x Hello Kitty, the two brands have once again partnered up for a head-to-toe collection that features bold colourways, classic graphics of the Japanese character and playful elements to inject cute elements throughout.

Available in both adult and youth styles and sizes, Converse x Hello Kitty features two classic Converse silhouettes: One Star and the iconic Chuck Taylor All Star, in Hi and Ox versions.

Peeking out from the heel, Hello Kitty adorns the One Star silhouette with repeat star graphics in alternating Red and Black colorways. For the All Star Hi and Ox, Hello Kitty pops up on the canvas upper with surprise bow, star and face graphics. Coming in Black and White colorways, the white sneaker features an apple graphic on the foxing tape.

The collection also features an assortment of apparel and accessories including a hoodie, jogger, tees, and hats – perfect for a very kawaii Christmas.

The collection will be available at Converse.com and selected retailers globally, and rolls out today, 6 December.
