Converse Addict Chuck Taylor All Star – Fall 2013

September 11th, 2013 by | 2 comments

converse addict chuck taylor all star canvas hi fall 2013 01 Converse Addict Chuck Taylor All Star   Fall 2013

The Converse Addict collection represents the creme de la creme when it comes to Chuck Taylors, but the only catch is the series is exclusive to Japan.  US sneakerheads will find this ironic, as one of the three fall 2013 Converse Chuck Taylor All Stars from the Addict collection is a navy canvas pair with white stars in the exact size, shape and arrangement you’d expect from an American flag.  The Deep Purple and Deep Taupe are every bit the All-American classics in their own right, which is to say that the Converse Japan retailers who have these are in possession of some timeless Americana.  Take a look at all three after the jump and let us know how many pairs of Addict Chucks you’ve imported.

Nike Mayfly Woven Quickstrike Pack

nike mayfly woven qs pack Nike Mayfly Woven Quickstrike Pack
For a shoe whose name refers to a creature with an extremely short lifespan, the Nike Mayfly has been out there for a good while.  Debuting in 2004 with its name a reference to the ethereal nature of its 4.8oz build (this was in the days before Hyperfuse, Flywire, or LunarLon, mind you), the Mayfly was suggested for use up to 62 miles.  Here we see the silhouette gain a second wind with the Nike Mayfly Woven arriving in four monotone suede Quickstrikes just in time for the start of fall.  Your choice of black, navy, brown or grey styles (the last of which is a new revelation) has all the neutral bases covered with each riding white soles, so check them out in detail after the jump, then hit your overseas connects because they’re available at select Asian retailers like Nike Harajuku.

The shoe’s slogan is ‘Luwon Never Gone’, but one thing that is in fact long gone is the likelihood that you’ll ever get a pair of ACU x Nike Lunar Force 1 ‘Shanghais’.  This Lunar Force 1 City Pack Quickstrike shouts out JUICE’s Shanghai predecessor, the first store in China to offer Nike Tier-0 and other exclusive sneakers.  A mere 50 pairs were made as part of the ’Ignite Shanghai’ initiative and most of those went out to friends and family, which makes this an extremely limited entry in the young LF1 saga.  Check out some new images after the jump and stick with Sneaker News for all the latest international release info.

x large converse september 2013 X Large x Converse Fall 2013 Collection

Proving that Converse China isn’t the only region with killer exclusives is this new collaborative capsule curated by the likes of X-Large. The team outfitted a range of silhouettes like the Converse Pro Leather and the Converse Chevronstar with their look, which in this case includes a cool new XLC logo to signify the partnership. And that logo’s not confined to the tongue either-there’s a least one pair that lets it stripe the midsole as well. Continue reading for the X-Large x Converse Fall 2013 collection and grab them now from Converse Japan.

Nike Zoom Flight V – White – Red – Black

The most recent Nike Zoom Uptempo V to surface overseas was the white, black and pink colorway that itself was something like an inversion of a mostly black pair that released about a year and a half ago. Find a middle ground between July’s and January 2012′s makeups, switch the pink for red and you arrive somewhere close to this newest iteration of the Japanese favorite Jason Kidd signature. As with other Zoom Uptempo V Premium releases, the leather on these looks to be high quality, so check out more angles after the jump and get with your overseas connects because these don’t usually make it to US retailers.

White Mountaineering x Saucony Hangtime

white mountaineering saucony White Mountaineering x Saucony Hangtime

It’s been nearly three years since Saucony resurrected 1987′s Spot-Bilt Hangtime. They’ve had such great success with collaborations on the classic running catalog, it’s only natural to see this vintage basketball hightop get the deluxe guest star treatment as well. Here we see Japanese label White Mountaineering apply their elegant touch to the Hangtime across three colorways, each of which emphasizes the now logo-free ankle area with pronounced piping and contrasting suede within. Have a look at all three pairs after the jump, then get with your overseas connects because this is one of those collabs that’s unlikely to reach US retailers.

We saw their Hyperdunk 2013 earlier today and now a look at the LOVELIFE x Nike Air Force 1 Low ‘Ignite Shanghai’. The nonprofit group started by Taiwanese TV personality Chen Jian Zhou to benefit youth cancer patients and their families sees its ‘L2′ double-ribbon logo more overtly applied to the Air Force 1, right out on full display at the top of the toebox. These share a red-speckled black midsole, but instead of Hyperfuse and Dynamic Flywire, the AF1s opt for old school leather and suede. No word on any US release for this pair just dropped in China, so enjoy the photos and stick with Sneaker News for the latest.
