Converse‘s Japanese branch continues innovating for Spring 2019. Following premium Jack Purcells for the Addict line, Converse Japan delivers a strong selection of progressive warm weather silhouettes.

A GORE-TEX-infused Jack Purcell high and Chuck Taylor low-tops are only a handful of the creative designs offered this season. A ’40s-inspired set of high- and low-top Chuck Taylors sport washed-out canvas uppers, complete with brass eyelets and reinforced stitching. A pineapple-printed Ox low is comparably tame when one considers the strappy, logo tape-heavy sandal and a lightweight knit Chuck Taylor, marking Converse’s first foray into sock shoes.

Check out the full range of seasonal sneakers on Converse Japan’s site.

Most recently, new imagery showcased special “Friends & Family” versions of KITH’s collaborative Coca-Cola Chuck Taylors.
