XLarge x Converse Japan Weapon Hi “TG-Camo”

converse japan chevron and star xl weapon tgcamo hi 2 XLarge x Converse Japan Weapon Hi TG Camo

It turns out the XR991 isn’t the only Converse classic created in collaboration with XLarge for this holiday season.  The XLarge x Converse Japan Weapon Hi ‘TG-Camo’ joins in the camo party with a tiger camouflage pattern at the base of an otherwise olive green suede design.  Camo kicks are one of the biggest trends of the year so we’re more than used to seeing those but this pair reminds us that the Weapon is a formidable piece in the arsenal, should the One Star decide to start offering more retros.  Check out this pair by XLarge in more photos below and let us know if you’ll look to import these.

As seen back in May, the Japanese clothing label Deluxe is soon to issue a collaboration with Vans.  We saw both pairs of these Deluxe x Vans Eras in that initial preview when they had gone up for pre-order, and it took a bit longer than most cases with the shoes just now arriving at retail.  This duo releases on Saturday in honor of Deluxe’s 10th anniversary, two nappy suede Eras with caramel leather heel tabs adding an uncharacteristic textured kickplate out front of the vulc sole whose waffle is done in a translucent rubber.  Click through to see both of these up close and let us know if their good looks will have you importing a pair.

Converse One Star J Suede

converse one star j suede Converse One Star J Suede

The latest delivery from Converse Japan features a silhouette that might just be the brand’s most famous outside of the classic Chuck Taylor.  The Jack Purcell is popular, no doubt, but the Converse One Star is established at Target (All Star toe cap and all) and also has the high-end covered with three new colorways here today.  These three do not opt for the rubber toe protector, instead using about the same amount of material to wrap the entire silo in a wider than usual top band on the foxing.  Click through to see black/red, green/white and blue/white styles in more detail and let us know if you’ll try to import these One Star J Suede lowtops now that they’re out in Japan.

evangelion adidas crazy fast Evangelion x adidas Crazy Fast

Craziness has utterly permeated the adidas Basketball lineup.  Whether it’s in a figurative sense in praise of their innovative lightweight designs or literally in terms of the nomenclature, there’s quite a bit of ‘Crazy’ in the Three Stripes roundball catalog these days.  This upcoming season, we can expect to see the Crazy Light 3 joined by the Crazy Ghost and Crazy Shadow 2 as well as this model carrying over from the 2012-13 campaign.  The adias Crazy Fast came onto the scene earlier this year with bold patterned colorways and today we see in collaboration with the popular anime franchise Neon Genesis Evangelion.  The graphics and textures on this Day of the Dead-ish colorway take it to a whole ‘nother level, as is the case with the collectability factor on this presumably Japanese exclusive.  Let us know how these compare to some of the other kicks we’ve seen with anime/manga tie-ins and stick with Sneaker News for the latest.

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.
