Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Leather Hi “Year of the Dragon”
With 2012 being the Chinese Year of the Dragon, many brands are taking advantage of the mystical creature’s mainstream resurgence by producing garments featuring the said beast. Converse has certainly jumped on the scaly bandwagon and after receiving word of a black model for the Chinese Zodiac, the shoemaker offers a look into an accompanying release. Featured on the Chuck Taylor All Star Leather Hi silhouette, Converse alters the upper to replicate ancient porcelain dragon decorations, complete with a wonderfully detailed dragon-shaped eyelet, red and black leather emblem, and contrasting black laces. The all-over porcelain print exclusives, along with other Year of the Dragon releases, will be available at select Converse retailers starting this week.
