Even though its parent company got started with the brand that’s the global leader in athletic footwear and gear, Converse is still considered the American heritage sneaker brand.  Their absorption into Nike, Inc. has improved not only the once-struggling One Star’s bottom line, but also sent them in the direction of collaborations and other modern marketing strategies.  The latest just so happens to team up with the Buffalo, NY company who’s been supplying Major League Baseball with 59FIFTY caps so long they’re the definitive name in fitteds.  So the New Era Cap Company x Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Hi has a ton of history behind it (196 years, to be exact), and when you see how NE’s famed woolen (actually, polyester since 2007) weave matches with the Chuck’s immortal silhouette, you might get a sense for this as an almost ‘inevitable’ pairing.  Click through to see more details including the N-flag heel embroidery and a green outsole reminiscent of NE’s old underbrim, and be sure to check back with Sneaker News to see if these release outside of Japan.  via Hayabusa
