Converse Addict is back with its latest collaboration, following up the previous GORE-TEX-clad drop with a set of Chuck Taylors emblazoned with graphics from UNDERCOVER. Based in Japan, Converse Addict is a premium sneaker line under the Converse family that updates classic silhouettes with elevated materials.

Arriving in two monochromatic colorways, featured are the Hi and Low silhouettes. The former comes in black, lathered in repeated prints of UC’s signature teddy bear with screws. From its tongue all the way to its lower body, the motif is repeated throughout the shoe, complemented by crisp white laces and top-stitching. The sneaker comes with Converse’s classic rubber toe cap and midsole. The low-top counterpart of the sneaker is rendered in white with the same illustrations, except inverted. As per usual with Converse Addict silhouettes, both models come with a detachable EVA cup PORON® insole, stacked with the essential Vibram sole.

The UNDERCOVER x Converse Addict Chuck Taylors will be available exclusively at the UNDERCOVER store in Aoyama and at the MADSTORE in Harajuku, ranging from $185 – $203 USD. Those who wish to purchase the shoes will be required to enter an online raffle at undercoverism.com, taking place on ‪October 16, from 10 am – 8 pm JST.

Elsewhere, Nike has unveiled customizable sneakers with its Pendleton By You series.
