Having recently taken the NEIGHBORHOOD‘s Fall/Winter 2017 collection out to Moscow, Japanese magazine GRIND has now given its editorial treatment to the latest drop from Converse. Staying true to the classic silhouette, the Suede All Star WV GM comes in a single understated black and “caramel” colorway with a premium suede upgrade to the upper.

Adding a little something extra to the sneaker, as well as being pleasingly minimal in terms of its aesthetic, the WV GM’s suede upper also happens to be waterproof — making it the perfect low-key footwear companion for the winter months.

Take a look at some of the images in the gallery above and — if these are doing it for you — head on over to the GRIND website for the full set. Elsewhere, in other Converse news, check out the latest from the brand’s ongoing collaboration with British designer J.W.Anderson.
