DIGGY SIMMONS TEAMS UP WITH DON C AT LAST NIGHT’S CONVERSE ERX NYFW PRESENTATION

New York, NY  –  Last night, rapper/model/artist, Diggy Simmons, fronted the Don C x Converse ERX-260 presentation during New York Fashion Week – a sneaker collaboration that offers a creative spin to the original Chicago inspired design. Simmons modeled items from the featured collection and payed respect to the famed streetwear designer by presenting him to an audience of fashion-forward tastemakers and editors. Simmons, a budding “front row staple” at this year’s Spring/Summer New York presentations, joined alongside fellow influencers, Jorge Gitoo WrightElle HuBeija VelezWuzg00d and Malachai Spivey.

Famously worn by several members of Detroit’s rough-and-tumble, back-to-back title-winning team, the ERX also graced the feet of rock stars and skate legends. The wearers shared a hard-working, defiant spirit, and ERX became a beacon for the bold.
First released in 1988, the ERX had an equal balance of bulk and tech. Underfoot, Converse’s Energy Wave technology provided enhanced cushioning and spurred the Energy Return Multiplier (ERX) moniker. Thirty years later, the sneaker that epitomized the over-the-top basketball style of the late 1980s is born again, and with the help of streetwear designer Don C to reflect the bold attitude and style of basketball culture today.
