Japanese ladies streetwear concern X-Girl has come through with their latest collaboration, which brings together three pattern trends that had some recent history in that part of the world before blowing up here in the States.  This X-Girl x Converse Chuck Taylor All Star takes on both animal print and camouflage with a bit of polka-dotting thrown in for good measure, but because of the colors used, this wildly detailed design is actually fairly wearable.  Click in for a closer view of this ‘Crazy’ new All Star from XLARGE’s ladies label and let us know how these compare to some of the womens collab sneakers recently released and coming up on this side of the world.
