nonnative‘s reconstructed approach to Converse collaborations arrives yet again, taking to the Pro Leather silhouette for the second time with its zippered motif. Adding a utility unfounded by the original tooling, the Japanese label has aligned the classic offering with an ethos that is wholly theirs. Two kits make up the entire capsule: a neutral grey as well as a much darker navy, with a smooth suede offering up contrast to the past iteration’s long grain texture. Yellowed midsoles showcase an appreciation for the vintage models of old while the modified fastener pushes the pair into a modern realm. With the previous set allowing one to opt for a traditional lace unit, it’s safe to assume that modularity is par for the course with this forthcoming release. Expect these to hit overseas retailers on February 16th at a retail of ¥22,000 JPY.
