Japanese comic artist, Hirohiko Araki, debuted his smash hit comic series, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, 26 years ago, cementing his creative vision in animation history. To commemorate the anniversary, Araki joined hands with CONVERSE to produce this collaboration Chuck Taylor All Star. Its leather tongue tag is marked the text "Phantom Blood" embossed on it, a reference to the name of its first chapter. The star inside the ankle patch was colored in purple to mimic the star-shaped birthmark found on Jonathan Joestar, the main character of the comic. Pre-order of these shoes will start on Monday, May 20, 2013 at select CONVERSE retailers in Japan.
