Reworking the duo’s instant-classic 2016 collaboration, nonnative reunites Converse for a duo of zippered Pro-Leather Hi shoes. The original iterations are tweaked slightly, swapping out longhair suede and pale midsoles for a more worn look.

Offered in navy and grey, the tall sneakers utilize premium smooth suede on the upper, contrasting Converse branding, and a yellowed rubber midsole to reinforce the age of the silhouette — the Pro-Leather Hi made its courtside debut in 1976. nonnative’s preferred zippered tongue gives the kicks a functional edge, though the zipper is removable for those who prefer classic laces.

The collaborative Converse sneakers hit Coverchord site on February 16 before rolling out to other Japanese stockists on March 16. Though 2016’s drop retailed for $195 USD, expect the new editions to boast a similar price tag. Take a closer look at the shoes below.

Meanwhile, Converse’s most recent JW Anderson collaboration was confirmed for a wider release.
