Converse and Neighborhood have announced a new collaborative footwear capsule collection. The Japanese label utilizes Converse’s iconic One Star ‘74 sneaker and modifies it to a premium suede upper with an embedded pentagram on the side. You’ll also notice that Neighborhood has added their slogan “Craft with Pride” motto around the glossy midsole.
The other sneaker is Converse’ Chuck Taylor All Star ‘70. This is where the pioneering brand Neighborhood channels Tokyo’s attention to detail. NBHD designer Shinsuke Takizawa adds both motorcycle and military elements to the sneaker. The shoe has a rugged leather-infused canvas upper placed firmly on top of a rubber sole alongside a revamped sock-liner.
The Converse x Neighborhood is available today in all Converse stores, online, and select stockists.
