Japan Only: New Converse Addict Chuck Taylor Collection
Japan remains the sneaker mecca for those in search of something a little different. Converse’s very limited Addict line is the product of the inner sanctum of just that: sneaker addicts. So, these hardcore fans are rewarded with an ultra-premium tier of Chuck Taylors.
This season, suede replaces canvas for the durable uppers, bolstering the spongy upgraded insole and hardy Vibram outsole units. Some fun pastels are on offer, plus classic black.
The pilgrimage is worth it for these kicks – but, the hunt is on for obscure boutiques carrying them because there will be no online drop. More info here.
