Converse continues to team up with unexpected partners-this time getting in bed with Tokyo’s NEIGHBORHOOD, a label that’s been on the scene since 1994 cranking out coveted garments. The NBHD team outfitted the Converse Jack Purcell Johnny Mid with a deep blue leather and the Converse All Star Chuck ’70 Ox with a royal blue suede and also decided to do up the both of them with contrast stitching. Continue reading for a complete look at the two sneaker set and watch for them to be available in men’s sizes from US 8-12 for $120. Also keep in mind that on Friday, October 25 at HOODS in Hong Kong, Union in Los Angeles and El Garito de Converse in Madrid will have the first crack at them, with a handful of other Converse First String accounts getting their pairs in come Friday, November 1.

invincible for converse first string jack purcell johnny INVINCIBLE x Converse First String Jack Purcell Johnny

These days it seems Converse is less and less interested in linking up with your standard sneaker retailer and more focused on drawing in team ups from bigger names-Margiela, Missoni, and HBC to name a few. But they’re not too good to still do a collab the old fashioned way, as exemplified by this new Jack Purcell Johnny creation made in conjunction with Taiwan’s own INVINCIBLE. The re-worked Converse Jack Purcell silhouette gets some animal print sections along the back end together with a zipper in quite the unusual spot. See the shoes in better detail below and keep in mind that they should be hitting select Converse First String accounts soon.

Deus Ex Machina x Converse Jack Purcell Johnny Mid

The Converse Jack Purcell Johnny is set apart from the other smile-toed JPs by its use of an external side panel reinforcement you might see as something of a ‘seatbelt’ for your foot.  Interesting, then, to see it done up by a brand who made its name crafting vehicles that don’t have them, as Australia’s Deus Ex Machina does up the midtop JP Johnny in black canvas with a tonal ‘belt’, golden tongue and burgundy foxing for a look that’s perfect as we transition into fall.  Check out more images below, then grab yours from top Converse stockists like CNCPTS.

Converse Japan debuted its Addict-level Jack Purcells this month, but they’re Far East exclusives.  For US sneakerheads, the First String line is a premium alternative, and this new pack of ‘Kasuri’ Converse Jack Purcell Johnnys makes good on the series commitment to top-tier excellence.  Applying an age-old Japanese dying technique, the uppers on high and lowtops have a marbled look that speaks to a more rarefied style than your average canvas build.  Click through so you can see how the low’s gum sole and inverted light/dark blocking compare to the white-soled highs and find yours at retailers like Up There.

How do you keep a three-quarter-centuries-old badminton sneaker relevant in a world where new technology is making kicks perform and look better than ever before?  If you’re Converse, it all starts with acquiring the Jack Purcell trademark rights some forty years ago and elevating it to the heights of its ubiquitous Chuck Taylor All Star.  Then a little over a year and a half ago, the One Star introduced the Jack Purcell Johnny variant with a new ‘seatbelt’ addition giving the toe ‘smile’ a run for this design’s signature element.  Add it all up and crank a set out through the company’s top-tier division and you end up with something exquisite like these Converse First String Jack Purcell Johnnys that pair a translucent reinforcement with microstriped uppers for the kind of subtle yet attention grabbing look that’ll have you staring until you realize that, yes, those are tortoise shell eyelets.  Quite a lot of nice details from such a simple, classic design, a sure indication that these will move quickly from First String stores like Up There.
