Converse and Hancock Vulcanised Articles have collaborated for a second time to create the all-new Converse Jack Purcell x Hancock Wetland sneaker.
Hancock Vulcanised Articles (HVA) is a modern luxury lifestyle label that offers contemporary rubber bonded outerwear, crafted using original techniques that date back to the 19th century. All pieces are hand-cut with shears, and seams are bonded manually with a secret traditional glue recipe.

Another cool feature is the subtle zipper closure that allows for customizable wear.

grips well to icy surfaces.
