It can be easy to get swept along with the hype, especially when anyone mentions the words "OFF-WHITE".
Earlier this week, we published an early look at what was thought to be the next Off-White x Converse. Cue the face palm emoji as it seems the entire internet was fooled. Despite leaking across several accounts, Converse have since confirmed that this style is a fake one.
It will surely come as a shock to those of you gassed at yet another Converse to feature Virgil's signature details. That said, it did look dubious from the offset and way different from the original Off-White x Converse Chuck Taylor.
Several of the leaked accounts are now suggesting that Converse are simply withholding the truth. "If you honestly think a major brand will confirm a stolen shoe is real you are on the best drugs"; stated @2muchsol3.
