Converse is perhaps the quintessential All-American sneaker brand, but they’ve enjoyed tremendous popularity in Japan for quite some time. The top-tier Addict series is exclusive to the Land of the Rising Sun, and while these newest releases aren’t part of that series, they do indeed reflect the meticulous craftsmanship that’s one of the nation’s hallmarks. The Converse Canvas All Star J Hi and Ox bring forth two and three colorways, respectively, distinguished from the general releases by subtle lettering on the heel and insole. Made in Japan and exclusive to nearby retailers, you can see more of these Chuck Taylors after the jump.
