WHAT: Vena Cava for Converse 1HUND(RED) Artists Chuck Taylor sneakers
WHY: Every year, we find another variety of Chuck Taylor to obsess over. In 2008, it was the studded version from Bess NYC, which we've worn to pieces. Thank goodness that Lisa Mayock and Sophie Buhai designed these brilliant high-tops to benefit The Global Fund, which aims to eliminate AIDS in Africa. Not only do we j'adore the sketches, based on their Havisu print--which we would like people to believe we did ourselves with a ballpoint pen during World Geography class--but we love the red and blue stripes on the sole. We just hope they stay in stock long enough at New York's The (Red) Store at 680 Fifth Avenue so we can order for a few selects on our holiday shopping list.
