A$AP NAST continues to defy expectations with a new take on the Converse Jack Purcell.
With a style unmistakably his own, the ever-expressive A$AP Nast is driven to seek and absorb new information. This curiosity continues to blend fashion and design concepts with hip-hop, as if always a singular concept.
A frequent collaborator of Converse’s, Nast grew up with the Chuck Taylor on his feet. Born and raised in Harlem, his passion of the brand first developed on its streets, seen on the feet of its uniquely eclectic personalities. This same passion first drove Nast to join Converse’s creative roster and led to this latest capsule.
Nast developed the Jack Purcell into a utilitarian sneaker honoring his love for the outdoors. “The silhouette is functional, durable. It’s intriguing… I wanted to craft a style that me and my team could wear every day, whatever way we like,” says Nast. The hero design element of the sneaker features heightened rubber overlays – which add dimension to the silhouette’s heritage canvas upper.
