Collaborating again on a new silhouette, A-COLD-WALL* and Converse deliver a progressive combination of avant-garde design cues and innovative CX comfort technology with the new Sponge Crater.
The conceptual vision of Samuel Ross, A-COLD-WALL* reflects the London subculture and hegemonic disparities through an atypical contemporary lens.
Through avant-garde fashion and installations, A-COLD-WALL* highlights the competing forces of class and environment in the landscape.
The experience of Britain’s working class is woven into the brand’s DNA—embodied in every piece.
Futuristic style meets next-gen comfort: Sponge Crater. A-COLD-WALL* helps reimagine a new Converse designed silhouette that pushes the limits of style and wearability with a lessis- more ethos. Samuel Ross applies his atypical contemporary aesthetic to a Converse silhouette unlike any other. The Sponge Crater also takes comfort to the next level with revolutionary CX foam underfoot, an egg-crate style traction pod outsole and the first full body made from Crater foam. The flat-knit upper helps promote breathability and the spandex collar, pull tabs and exaggerated heel kick enhance ease of entry. This unique avant-garde design comes to life through a thoughtful production process, delivering a bold new silhouette.
