Earlier this month, The Converse (PRODUCT)RED Leather Jacket Chuck Taylor All Star launched at The (RED) Store locations in New York, San Francisco & London on World AIDS Day. Finally, on Christmas Eve at Noon, good folks in DC will get a chance to cop these special shoes at MAJOR!
Made up of a patchwork of motorcycle jacket inspired red leather, the shoe comes complete with a quilted lining, heavy-duty zips and snaps and a leather rand with clean emboss detail.
For the Holiday season, Converse chose 6 select retailers in the US, including MAJOR, to launch these high tops. The shoes will retail for $200 and will be available in Men’s 7 through 12, whole sizes only. Ten percent of the net wholesale price of the shoe will go to The Global Fund help eliminate AIDS in Africa, giving consumers an opportunity to become agents of change.

On December 17th, 2006 at Midnight, we gave birth to the first premium sneaker & streetwear boutique destination in Washington DC. From the beginning MAJOR was a movement about sneakers, gear, fitteds, and attitude that exudes confidence & superiority. From the very first New Era collab fitted to each one of our storied sneaker and gear collaborations, we have maintained the confidence that we are the Only Store That Matters. All of you, the extended MAJOR family, have chosen us as the go-to destination, and supported us to remain at the top of people’s choice here in DC & worldwide.
To thank our nocturnal MAJOR family, we are holding a special sale event on Wednesday, December 16th, starting at 11 pm. For 3 hours only (11 pm to 2 am), everything we have on the floor will be 30% off. On top of that, we will be dropping 2 collaborations with 2 very important brands, along with a fitted cap or two to celebrate this occasion.
Here is a sneak preview of what collabs are coming:
Just like when we opened for the first time, we cannot tell you too many details, and details will be revealed as the time nears. Please do not call us about the sale or collabos, just show up, be with other like-minded MAJOR fam, and enjoy the savings and new exclusive stuff.
Once again, the entire staff at MAJOR thanks you for your support… And together we will always be on top!!!

A native of Uppsala, Sweden, André began painting on the walls of Paris in 1985 and quickly became one of the city’s most prolific graffiti artists. He broke ground by becoming the first artist to use a character—”Mr. A,” a stick figure with a top hat—instead of a tag name.
The fifth installment of Curated by Arkitip features original André artwork—the distinctive “Mr. A” character that brought him street fame in Paris—screen-printed on Incase’s signature iPhone Slider Case.
Each Slider Case comes with a clear stand for hands-free viewing of media at home or at work.
Extremely limited in supply. Now in stock at MAJOR. Phone orders are welcome.

MAJOR is very pleased to announce the launch of the Women’s exclusive Converse (Product) Red Chuck Taylor by Vena Cava, on Saturday, December 5th.
Sophie Buhai and Lisa Mayock were fated to work together. When just out of high school, a mutual friend introduced them in LA. they soon started their own clothing line, Vena Cava. “It started mainly as a way to have a party and show our friends the clothes we’d made. It developed into a mini collection that was shown during fashion week.” And not long after that it started making fashion headlines and getting worn by the young and stylish—and famous.
For Converse 1HUND(RED) Artists, the Vena Cava girls did a version of their Havisu print, which captures their aesthetic, a combination of deco and Native American. “We want to wear it and we want our friends to wear it of course,” Buhai says. “If we designed a shoe that in even a small way helps with the AIDS situation in Africa, then we’re happy to do so.”
Available in Women’s Size 5 (Men’s 3) to Size 10 (Men’s 8)… Launches Saturday, December 5th at 11 a.m. at MAJOR Showroom, and via phone order (202 625 6732).
