If you dig whales and the ocean as much as Millie Bobby Brown, then her upcoming sneaker collection with Converse is for you. The stylish 15-year-old is the youngest collaborator ever to work with the iconic shoe brand. She's also been known to dress up the casual footwear on the red carpet.
The Stranger Things star is hot off the premiere of the series' third season, which has garnered more than 40 million streams on Netflix in its first weekend. Fans have been searching far and wide for nostalgic styles following the drop of the series. Now that the young fashion icon has partnered with the sneaker company that gained popularity in the early '80s, fans can achieve the look with a modern twist.
The nautical theme of the upcoming launch is perfect for the summer season, and was inspired by an ocean sunset and Brown's love for oceanic creatures like orcas. Appropriately the actor's collab will release on July 11.
The sneakers are youthful and fun with a design fit for summer.
A July release for these seaworthy sneakers is perfect timing. Converse has also committed to creating more environmentally friendly products. The brand's Instagram account announced a line of renewable shoes made from recycled plastic.
"Original canvas feel, but now with an upper crafted from 100% recycled polyester that came from used plastic bottles. There’s always a way to renew what we do," the brand shared.
The collection represents Brown's energetic and philanthropic personality.
"When I started this collection I wanted something that represented me as a person," the Unicef Goodwill Ambassador said in an accompanying video on the shoe's Instagram Story. "Whales for me are the most majestic animals," she said in another video celebrating the line. "On the logo there's just, like, a beautiful swimming whale. That is like my dream come true in a little circle."
And given Eleven's recent on-screen foray into bright, bold, patterned clothes, this collab comes at the perfect time.
Brown has starred in a Converse ad campaign before, nearly two years ago. But this is her first official collab with the brand.
As Brown grows up in front of the world, she has grown into something of a style icon. With official Stranger Things apparel at H&M, Target, Hot Topic, and Levi's, fans already have ways in which to copy the star's on-screen style. Starting on July 11, there will be one more way to incorporate MBB fashion into your everyday look.
