Children of the Discordance has made waves outside of its native Japan with its elevated punk stylings, and Spring/Summer 2019 may yield its most eclectic offerings to date. This season, the brand is partnering with footwear experts RECOUTURE for a brief capsule of elevated sneakers, including monochrome Nike Cortez and Converse Chuck Taylors bolstered by handstitched Vibram soles and leather accents.

Talented cobblers upgrading classic sneakers is something of a growing trend throughout Japan and Greater Asia, and this collaboration may be the most accessible way to buy into it. Each collaborative Converse features a conventional canvas upper, complete with sturdy metal eyelets and CotD-branded laces. Leather wraps around the lower portion of each shoe, aiding the transition from lightweight trainer to welted shoe, finished off with a treaded Vibram outsole.

Shop select items from Children of the Discordance on Farfetch now and stay tuned for more international stockists.

Elsewhere in Japan, the domestic branch of Converse has introduced a retro-indebted “Big C” pack.
