The impact of the Converse x Missoni project can be felt through the now widespread use of intricate patterns on all kinds of sneakers, even in-house projects from the One Star.  These new Converse First String Jack Purcell Johnnys have been dubbed ‘Kasuri’ for their resemblance to the Japanese weaving technique combining fibers dyed to create patterns, each featuring a staticky mix of neutral shades atop the classic ‘smile’ shelltoe sole.  Hightops are white on the bottom and lows are gum, which implies how much your wardrobe choices frame how these are perceived once you grab a pair or two from Kith.

Oscar Niemeyer x Converse Collection

Tinker Hatfield famously holds a bachelor’s degree in architecture from the University of Oregon, and it’s clear he took his love for design in the right direction.  Some people are meant to spend their lives designing buildings, and few did it more impactfully during the 20th century than Brazilian Oscar Niemeyer.  Niemeyer (born months before Converse was established) helped to define the look of Brasilia in the 1950s, pushed the envelope when it came to utilizing reinforced concrete and sees his nonlinear approach to design carried over onto a quintet of Converse collaborative releases.  The Oscar Niemeyer x Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Hi, Oxford and Chukka Boot join the Skidgrip Ox and Jack Purcell lowtop with designs blending white, beige and red, and you can see all five below before they arrive at select Brazilian retailers this Wednesday, October 23rd.

The British Millerain Company sat on the sidelines during the recent explosion in sneaker collaborations, going silent for nearly four years after a couple of Nike Terminator teamups.  They’re making up for lost time now with two new drops in two months, as a trio of Converse Jack Purcell lowtops follow a recent Puma Stepper drop.  These are roughly the opposite of those Pumas, opting for plaid uppers with just enough leather for the piping, and offering more variety via three different earthy weaves.  Check out how the brass eyelets give these a classy finish in more photos below and grab yours straight from Converse.

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.

Converse Jack Purcell RLY Leather Saddle

It’s ironic that a term like ‘tennis shoes’ is at some level so ubiquitous, because experienced sneakerheads recognize this category as one that’s overshadowed by basketball, running and other sports.  But one area where tennis sneakers excel is in the casual space, where a model like the Jack Purcell has been able to remain relevant by taking on countless themes and variations.  The Converse Jack Purcell RLY Leather Saddle integrates timeless Oxford design elements including a two-toned leather build and brogue perforations, as well as relatively thick corded laces the likes of which we’ve not seen from other saddle shoe hybrids or really any notable releases (even with an abundance of boot and trail styles available this fall).  Let us know which pair looks best after you’ve seen both in detail below and check the ‘Bay because these Converse Japan releases are pretty hard to come by here in the US.
