Known for their often understated and always perfectly executed collaborations, BEAMS works with Converse this summer for a special premium edition of the Chuck Taylor All Star Hi. Also teaming up with bespoke clothing manufacturer Engineered Garments, the shoe features an asymmetrical, mismatched mix of off-white and cream hues across each of the alternating suede and canvas panels. The special construction also features a throwback outsole design for the Chuck Taylor not used in decades on the most classic sneaker of all time. And for a modern touch, they add special insoles that utilize Nike’s new React foam for a more comfortable ride.
Also releasing in a low-top version, the BEAMS x Engineered Garments x Converse Chuck Taylor All Star is scheduled to release in Japan this September. In other recent Converse collab news, check out the upcoming One Star by CLOT.
