The New MadeMe x Converse Is What Your Rodeo Babe Dreams Are Made Of
God knows we love a good collab. So, when we heard MadeMe was teaming up with Converse yet again, we were excited.
Last Spring, the brands teamed up on a MadeMe X Converse collection starring Lourdes Leon and featuring a group of platform One Stars that made us officially melt. We went to the launch party in New York, where MadeMe created a Lower East Side pop-up shop featuring Boris Zuborev, the St. Marks shoe repair god that basically invented platform shoes. At the event, customers could deck out to their own Converse x MadeMe sneakers, thanks to him.
This season, however, MadeMe’s Erin Magee was inspired by Western wear, Americana and the rodeo, delivering a pretty much perfect campaign starring Oyster favorite Paloma Elsesser as the cowgirl of our wildest dreams.
Dropping December 8, the collection features two One Star platforms in ‘Pink Icing’ and ‘Taupe,’ with a premium suede upper, western arrow detailing and a sheriff badge embroidery around the star.
As for the apparel, the drop includes two tracksuits in ‘Fiery Red’ and ‘Suede Taupe,’ and two different babydoll tees, all featuring the same sheriff badge embroidery.
As if all that weren’t enough, Magee also created a patent leather purse with western arrow detailing in two colors.
The whole thing makes me want to quit my job, join the rodeo and ride a bull for a living. And hey, if I do, at least I’ll have the right wardrobe. Too bad I don’t look as cute in a cowboy hat as Elsesser.
