When last we saw the Rod Laver opt for a cork footbed, it was in collaboration with Beauty & Youth.  The United Arrows imprint is once again involved with a premium rendition of this classic tennis lowtop, this time resurrecting the elegant OG colorway.  The adidas Originals Rod Laver for Beauty & Youth gives you the classic white and green pairing, and while there’s not a hint of co-branding on this low-key handshake deal, that cork insole is proof positive that this edition is distinct from its predecessors, however apparently identical.  Have a closer look after the jump and hit your overseas connects because these are arriving at select Japanese retailers right now.

Puma Suede “Year of the Snake”

Despite the opportunity to easily slip a snake-scaled Formstripe onto a variety of classic silhouettes, Puma has been deliberate with their Year of the Snake releases for 2013.  Still, this new Puma Suede Snake COM.A pack makes you feel like they should go ahead and do a full color run on these snake-accented designs.  It’s a strong look in red or black suede with grey serpent stripes on the side panel and a Chinese character on the tongue tag, but it looks like these two will complete the set, and you can see both of them in more detail after the jump below.

The latest in a long line of sneaker collaborations connected to Japanese hip-hop collective Teriyaki Boyz comes courtesy of the member they share in common with RIP SLYME.  The Ilmari x adidas Originals Superstar ‘Tribe’ sees the Finish-born Japanese emcee go with a style not totally dissimilar from the originals made famous by Run-DMC.  The key differences, and the apparent source of the nickname come from the vaguely Polynesian zig-zag band that wraps the collar, an effect composed of the same sequins that define the side panel Stripes.  These are slated to hit select Far East retailers next Friday, March 15th and you can see more shots after the jump.

Converse Japan just unveiled an ’80s-era ‘Retrotropica’ print, and for their latest All Stars, it’s a similar theme that functions as a sequel to a 2011 release.  The second Converse Chuck Taylor All Star ‘Fruit Pack’ revisits the photo-realistic print that served up strawberries and lemons a couple of years back (a design we can in retrospect see as one of the originators of this current wave of patterned sneaker designs).  This time around, it’s cherries for the red edition and dried pineapple rings for the yellow, which are joined by a Granny Smith green apple third to round out this set currently available at select Far East retailers.

The latest from Converse Japan’s U.S. Originator capsule reaches back to the wild 1980s multicolor prints that inform today’s pattern trends.  The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star ‘Retrotropica’ features four pairs split between high and low covered from heel to capped toe in sketches of leaves and fruit, with a red canvas base adding colors reminiscent of the New Orleans Hornets for a more high-contrast feel than the blues, which opt for mostly cool-colored hits.  Click through to compare and let us know which of these you prefer, then hit your overseas connects because these aren’t likely to arrive at American retailers.

ZOZOTOWN x adidas Originals Campus ’80s

Japanese e-mall Zozotown links up with adidas Originals to create a collaboration that’s simultaneously timely and unexpected.  The ZOZO x adidas Originals Campus ’80s comes to us at a time when animal prints are at an all time high, bolstered by how easy it is to make a Year of the Snake sneaker look great.  But instead of taking the simple scaled approach that’s already worked well for several Three Stripes releases including a trio of CP 80s last summer, ZOZO opts to use a very shaggy pony hair to create an asymmetrical approach that from a distance would look like a well-aged navy lowtop.  Up close and after the jump below, you can see how this March release is about half-suede, half-fur with a little snake sprinkled on top; be sure to stick with Sneaker News to see if they slither stateside.
