Converse is serious about the comeback of their Auckland Racer running shoe. Better known for restyling their classics, than innovating, that seems to be changing. The Auckland Racer launched for Spring 2012 in three versions – the classic Auckland Racer, the Auckland Racer Premium and the Auckland Racer Remix.
The Auckland Racer Premium is a material upgrade of the original, now featuring premium nubuck leather uppers. The Auckland Racer Remix is the new version of the sneaker, updated with functional materials, including mesh and nylon, as well as a lightweight outer sole. The full range of Converse Auckland Racer sneakers is now in stock at select retailers.
