Converse just released two ‘Hawaiian Print’ Chuck Taylor Lows last month, but here we say ‘aloha’ to a whole bunch more floral canvas.  Not only is the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Specialty higher than its Ox predecessor, both pairs are accompanied by matching premium backpacks, complete with the same embossed leather All Star patch that marks the shoes’ medial ankles.  These will hit select Chinese retailers on Friday, June 14th, so stick with Sneaker News to see if we get a wider release.

The last FC Real Bristol x Nike collaboration hit Japan in late December on a couple of mastermind co-signed Air Max 2012s.  Prior to that, this fragment design x Uniform Experiment teamup had crafted a Solar Soft Sandal, and they must have liked the result because here’s another summer sneaker with the same sole stuff.  The F.C.R.B. x Nike Solarsoft Waffle Cruiser will arrive at FCRB retailers this Saturday, May 25th in a couple of colorways that are similar to some seen on the Solarsoft smash hit Roshe Run.  You might not be able to get your hands on these here in the States, so that exclusivity along with a $58 pricetag means these will go fast.

Li-Ning Wade All City

li ning wade all city Li Ning Wade All City

Dwyane Wade’s first Li-Ning signatures sold so well that the Way of Wade has spawned a second line.  The Li-Ning Wade All City is another example of the design language used in D-Wade’s sig series, including the unique ‘W’ shaped eyestay that’s one of the defining features.  These are more affordable than the Way of Wade, but that doesn’t mean it’ll be easier to get your hands on, especially for US sneakerheads.  Furthering this notion is the fact that the Wade All City hit for April in China, so check them out after the jump below and let us know if you plan to leverage overseas connects to grab a pair.

Converse Chuck Taylor All Star BK “Sweatshirt Pack”

Converse’s use of the ‘sweatshirt’ theme in the 2010s is a good example of how to extend a concept over a long period instead of milking it dry in one shot.  There were Chucks in 2010 and ’12 with a Star Player Sock Mid in between, and now we see a release for 2013 that outnumbers the past three years combined.  Again exercising restraint, we see Converse Japan issue not a rainbow, but more of a Punnett square of Converse Chuck Taylor All Star BK Hi and Oxes.  Each height gets grey/green and blue colorways, all four of which you can see in more photos below.
