It’s about to be time to break out the lightweight buttondowns for spring, but even before the weather lets you throw on a thinner knit, you can get some of that classic styling courtesy of Converse Japan. Check out these new Converse Jack Purcell Mini Check lowtops, two new colorways of the stripe-toed classic that incorporate a subtle pattern into their canvas uppers. They’re ever so slightly similar and yet entirely different from Nike Sporstwear’s upcoming Gingham Pack; which do you prefer? Check out two different colorways in more photos after the jump and stick with Sneaker News for the latest Converse Japan releases.
