One interesting aspect of Japanese culture is its ability to adopt what is new and incorporate it with ease. A good example is its language. When traditional Japanese text failed to provide a definition accurately, an onomatopoeia is be created in its place. Words such as “nya nya” as to mimic a cat’s meow or “kero kero” as to a frog’s croak. “Moco Moco” (ãƒ¢ã‚³ãƒ¢ã‚³) is also such onomatopoeia, as it refers to the softness of wool or “super softness” as it define.
A take on the original Chuck Taylor All Star Moo Hi released in 2000, the new Converse – Chuck Taylor All Star Mocomoco Hi is a commemorative edition, as part of the label’s 100th anniversary celebration. Like the All Star Moo Hi, the All Star Mocomoco Hi replicates the sheep’s wool (instead of cow’s hide), featuring a polyester faux shearling upper, along with suede accents, in natural or black colorways. The Chuck Taylor All Star Mocomoco Hi is currently available at selected Converse Japan retailers and FLAUGE of ZOZOTOWN network.
