After dropping the eco-friendly Chuck Taylor All Star “Musenshoku,” Converse Japan has modified the venerable high-top classic once again, creating a two-tone “Monopanel” style. Arriving in a black/white and a white/black, each shoe does a lot with a little, presenting a striking style with its bold colorblocking and stark hues.

Even though the base and accent colors are directly inverted, each design applies them in an identical fashion. The forefoot, midfoot, tongue, throat, and even eyestays are all one solid color, up until the middle of the collar, which is split in half by the heel-covering opposite shade. Bisecting the split on the medial side is a classic Chuck Taylor All-Star badge, appropriately done up in black/white or white/black. Finally, the entire upper is constructed of a modern Tencel canvas, which offers improved strength over older models.

The midsole continues the split-colored detail of the upper, discarding its usual secondary striped accents to provide a unified look. Both pairs are then rounded off with a full-length React foam footbed for comfort, and feature a blue Converse Japan hit on the outsole for a pop of tertiary color.

Both the white/black and the black/white makeups are set to release via Converse Japan on October 25. The MSRP is set at ¥8,800 JPY (approx. $81 USD).

In Chuck news of the non-Converse Japan variety, the ever-popular Chuck 70 recently appeared in a sequin and snakeskin print-equipped makeup.
