Tyler, The Creator shows off his best shoe in brand new Converse.
Continuing a five-year partnership with the footwear brand, Tyler has just launched the GLF 2.0 – an all-new silhouette from Converse and the Grammy-winning rapper’s fashion label, GOLF le FLEUR*.
Featuring a more understated grown-up look than previous GOLF le FLEUR* kicks, the new GLF 2.0 sneakers feature a color-blocked design in two colorways: Oil Green and Bison, and Curry and Copper Tan. The materials, which include a canvas upper and suede overlays, give the sneakers some structure and a premium feel. Tyler was inspired by nostalgia when designing the new sneakers, according to Converse, which shines through in the materials, colors and vintage Converse logo number plates.
Get the new GLF 2.0 now at Converse.com and GOLF le FLEUR* for $110 while supplies last. Tyler’s sneakers almost always sell out immediately, so be quick if you want a pair.
The GLF 2.0 sees Tyler take a new direction, reflecting the artist’s continued evolution as a musician and designer. If you want to snag one of the previous GOLF le FLEUR* x Converse sneakers, you’ll have to look to the resale market. Fortunately, many great examples can be found on resale platforms such as Stadium Goods, at reasonable prices.
Previous GOLF le FLEUR* sneakers (of which there are many) played on the rapper’s love of skateboarding, fresh colors and whimsical logos – best exemplified by his early work with Converse, the reimagined One Star. Shop the now iconic GOLF le FLEUR* x Converse One Star below.
Tyler’s sneakers with Converse have also regularly incorporated bold fabrics like quilted velor, burlap, and faux crocodile textile, again making the new GLF 2.0 a more mature and versatile shoe by comparison. Another classic from the Tyler line is the Chuck 70 HI flame decal.
Along with designing new sneakers, Tyler, The Creator is busy touring Europe and gearing up to headline the Made in America Music Festival later this year alongside Bad Bunny. The festival, which will take place in Philadelphia from September 3-4, will also include performances by Pusha T, Toro y Moi, Key Glock, Lil Uzi Vert and Kodak Black. Be sure to grab tickets to Made in America now at Ticketmaster.com.
