Everything seems to be changing now that we live in the future. New generations of phones are released in a matter of months, not years. Black Friday now begins to wreak its havoc on Thanksgiving day and our grandfather’s wingtips are now colorful and comfortable–that is, until you refocus on the iconic CONVERSE brand and their timeless Chuck Taylor All Star silhouette. While the collaborators, the textures, and the colors have all changed, nothing will ever truly up-end the classic cut of this shoe. Its look will only continue to be refined, not remade, which is exactly what the brand does with Japan’s Styles. The two brands have produced a model with a clay-colored Hirahimo cotton to go with a white toe cap and midsole. A set of black laces and a Tokyo Lifestyles-labeled insole finish the look. These are set for a January 12, 2013 release date via Styles’ online shop.
Release Date: January 12, 2013 (Saturday)
