Shhhh. The Japan-only Addict line from Converse is still a bit of an in-the-know thing. The rest of the world has a formidable bevy of Chuck Taylors to choose from, but the Addict editions simply trump them all.
Take, for example, this GORE-TEX equipped low-cut edition. An ongoing partnership with label N.HOOLYWOOD, practicality is maximised with the all-black upper that switches out the typical canvas build for suede. Combine that with the 60s spec build: shorter toe cap, smaller heel plate, denser laces, Vibram sole… there’s too much to list.
You’ve got two months to sort out a Japan plug, because that’s the only place you’ll be able to get them.
