nonnative‘s collaborative relationship with Converse Japan, which is typically reserved for sale overseas, is arguably one of the most consistent the brand has seen in years past. Rather than experiment with new models and styles, the Japanese label has preferred to expand their zippered take on the Pro Leather, a modified silhouette that is soon to see a tonal black and white colorway later this October.
A near exact replica of the releases prior, the upcoming pairs take the tried-and-true template and simply applies new layers of color. Suede constructions still run replete throughout the entire upper, stopped only by the Star Chevron which is layered atop in matching smooth leather. Heel tabs follow the latter’s example for additional premium effect, while the lace unit leans towards rugged workwear inspiration as its removable zipper attachment is tightened in with thin rope laces.
Grab a detailed look at both options right here and expect a release to hit a number of Japanese stockists come October 14th.
