The timeless Converse All Star–considered the oldest athletic sneaker in the world by some–has been given a brand new facelift in this Japanese iteration. With burnt orange suede uppers and a happier light yellow lining, this cheery colorway celebrates the passing of winter into a coming spring. Some thoughtful details have been tweaked to improve the classic Chuck Taylor experience here as well: a sporty mesh lining for enhanced comfort, elastic rubber laces that allow for convenient slipping on and off, and a newly molded three-dimensional insole that promises less foot fatigue when worn for long periods. These are going for ¥10,395 JPY (approximately $127 USD) and are currently exclusive to Japan for now so you’ll have to reach out to friends or shoppers in Tokyo to get your hands on a pair.
