Operating as a completely separate entity from its American counterpart, Converse Japan is known for its uniquely striking designs, the latest in-line release of which is the new All Star Jogger Hi.

Offering a classic above-ankle cut, rubberized toe cap, and recognizable midsole/outsole, this modified Chuck Taylor then equips a laceless canvas upper, secured by a Velcro shroud that reaches across the throat for a smooth look. A snap closure on the elastic collar offers further security, while a classic Converse badge appears in its standard spot on the medial ankle. Two colorways have been presented: a classic all black and a military-style olive green with black and white detailing.

These aren’t the only modified Chucks we’ve seen this season as Converse US recently altered the onetime basketball shoe for their Cold Weather Collection, but as the seasons change their arrival overseas is certainly a timely one. Both pairs are available on converse.co.jp now, and retail for ¥8,250 (approx. $76 USD).

Check out detailed images of both directly above. In other news from Japan, Verdy’s Harajuku Day festivities on October 12 had to be cancelled due to Typhoon Hagibis nearing the city, and it looks as if the rest of the weekend’s activities may be postponed as well.
