As you might expect from a guy who’s known for reinterpreting American classics and shifting Stateside trends with his releases from the Far East, A Bathing Ape founder Nigo was well ahead of the game when it comes to the Converse Addict Chuck Taylor All Star series. Nigo showed off a pair from the second season of Addict Chucks a good while before they dropped at select Japanese retailers in late 2009, and it looks like the upgraded, Vibram-soled super All Stars made a serious impression on him. Fast forward two and a half years later and we see that there’s a new set of
BAPE Nigo x Converse Addict All Star Highs, both of which switch up the medial zipper trend and go for a lateral entry so as not to disturb the Chuck’s signature medial ankle patch. Brown and white pairs will arrive at select retailers on March 10th, so stick with Sneaker News for word on their availability.
