Tyler the Creator has stayed true to his own personal taste and sense of style over the years.
Beginning his footwear phenomenon with an array of GOLF WANG and Odd Future branded Vans collaborations with silhouettes like the Old Skool, Authentic and Sk8-Hi, Tyler has since continued his affinity for less hyped silhouettes through his partnership with Converse.
Since joining the Converse family, he’s helped revive the brand’s One Star by pushing it into a a versatile essential that has a place in a wide variety of wardrobes. By branding the One Star as his own Golf le Fleur staple, he’s also recently received his own signature variations of the CT 70.
