The celebration of its 100th year continues as Converse Japan re-visit some of the label’s most interesting Chuck Taylor All Star models for inspiration.  Though obscure,  some of these early editions opened possible design themes for other labels, such as Nike and Reebok, later on.

Invoked by the 1990 All Star Christmas, a Chuck Taylor All Star “decked out” in patterns of Santa Claus and Christmas Tree.  The Converse – Chuck Taylor All Star X-Flower (short for Christmas Flower) takes on from the same inspiration with a simpler graphic – a overlapped sequence of poinsettia silhouettes.  As part of its December release in Japan, the Converse – Chuck Taylor All Star X-Flower Hi & Lo will be available in 2 color schemes: black & white and a natural red & orange.  Hitting store shelves at selected Converse retailers in Japan next month
