Sneaker News just showed you the Converse Premium Collection for fall 2012, and within were previews of John Varvatos’ latest efforts for the One Star. Key among these is a style the likes of which we’ve seen offered by Varvatos on other models, but never quite like this. The John Varvatos x Converse Chuck Taylor Zip Hi is a black leather look that applies its zipper to the lower ankle collar, which gives you the option to quickly remove the top two eyelets in favor of a more ‘Ox’-leaning All Star. The black leather is top-notch as always to signal that blackened details merely denote premium vintage quality, and you’ll find them available now at select Converse stores like CNCPTS.
