ROMBAUT turns to the world of pugilism for the Fall/Winter 2017 season. Presented with a boxing event at the Boxing Club Maccabi, Mats Rombaut had some heavyweight fighters, including the World Champion Tom Duquesnoy, wearing the vegan shoes and fighting for peace with all the money raised from this event going straight to the Karam Foundation, who are providing effective aid for Syrians under siege in Eastern Aleppo.

“Essentials is the perfect blend of product and culture from a brand like Converse. Focussed around classic sportswear items, redefined for streetwear….it mirrors the story of Converse as a brand, born in sport, raised by the streets.”
