Converse Japan has released imagery for its latest offering in the Addict line, of which highlights maximum utility.

Incoporating GORE-TEX membrane fabric, the Converse Addict Chuck Taylor is now safeguarded from water damage, albeit rain, puddles, or the occasional spill. Spring 2018’s offerings are presented in two varied colorways – a subdued black canvas low version along with a season-appropriate Multicolor high iteration that sees shades of green, blue and peach. The latter is inspired by a legacy colorway found in the ’80s, while the former features contrast white stitching. For those seeking minimalism with luxury rather than function, a white leather low pair is also releasing for this season. Each pair is attached to the line’s synonymous addition of a custom Vibram sole, found exclusively on the Addict line.

Check your local Converse Addict Japan stockist to purchase the Multi and White on April 10, while the Chuck Taylor low will release on May 10. Recently, Converse Japan also released an Osaka and Tokyo edition of the Chuck Taylor High in pale green and orange, respectively.
