Japan’s Vanquish has teamed up with CONVERSE on a radical reinterpretation of the brand’s Skidgrip sneaker. The traditional canvas fabrication is traded in for an upper dressed entirely in black featuring three different materials: suede at the forefoot and heel, stitched leather at the eyestay and midfoot, and glossy patent leather at the tongue and medial side panel. Two rows of metal studs replace traditional eyelets, while a leopard-print sockliner completes the premium look. The padded collar, vulcanized outsole construction and overall silhouette remain the same, but the shoe is completely remade.
