Converse announces the sak for Converse collection. Hiruma’s story is unique. Born in Japan, he has been pursuing age-old Italian craftsmanship in Florence, Italy for nearly a decade. Choosing to immerse himself in the historical home where Renaissance and industrial design have converged for centuries, Hiruma’s unique and modern sensibility blends with his unmistakable skill and artistry to create four amazing styles for Spring 2010.

Creating coveted versions of Converse’s most recognizable styles, Hiruma carefully replicates the silhouette of the Chuck Taylor All Star, Jack Purcell and One Star shoes using old-world construction techniques. Each shoe features beautiful, supple leathers –all hand-stitched from upper and rand to insole. Hiruma gives each shoe leather soles that echo finely made dress shoes, yet with ink printed logos and trademark detail that give them a playful, comfortable feeling. Each shoe comes in natural shades of tan, off-white and black leather with hand cut logos and detailing for the shoes uppers. The attention to detail includes elegant hand-stitched leather rands and toe bumpers and charming touches such as a hand-cut star cut out gracing the ends of each shoe’s leather laces.

The sak for Converse collection includes the iconic Chuck Taylor All Star shoe available in black or off-white high-top versions this Spring; the Jack Purcell shoe in an off-white oxford version and the One Star 1974 in a black oxford version available for Fall. A Star Tech high top shoe will be available later in the year. The shoes will launch globally TODAY at select global retailers. Shoes will retail for $600.00 – $700.00 and will be available in men’s sizing 7 – 11. Truly works of art, these crafted masterpieces are produced in collaboration as a part of the Converse First String program, the brand’s most premium tier and only 64 pairs in each style will be available worldwide. The kicks will be sold exclusively in the United States at Opening Ceremony and Concepts, as well as Dover Street Market in the UK.
