Converse Addict is the One Star’s Japanese ultra-premium tier that launched in 2009 and brings the world’s most exacting consumer base the best quality Chuck Taylor All Stars imaginable.  We’ve seen these pricey Vibram-soled Chucks in a fairly conservative range of colors and themes, and now the luxury treatment makes its way onto the One Star’s second most popular heritage silhouette.  The Converse Addict Jack Purcell will arrive in a few weeks in three super-simple designs, the black pair suggesting white and grey styles will also arrive in the classic canvas build.  They’ll likely remain Japan-exclusive like the previous Addict drops, so have a closer look below and let us know if you’re up for importing a pair.

Japanese fashion superstar Nigo’s A Bathing Ape label has its own Chuck Taylor tribute in the Apesta, but BAPE’s leader reached outside his brand’s bounds for this latest project, a new set for the ultra-premium Converse Addict line that applies the designer’s signature approach to an old favorite.  The Nigo x Converse Addict Chuck Taylor All Star adds a zipper to its lateral sides, a move that switches to the exterior-facing side a feature we’ve seen applied to many classic basketballers’ medial panels in recent months.  Furthermore, the zipper placket is more fully exposed than those other zipped kicks, and this distinct application serves as the exlamation point on the ‘opposite day’ vibe.  This unique feature in addition to top-notch materials and a Vibram sole has these north of $300USD; are they worth importing from the select Japanese retailers that now have them in stock?  via HB
