Converse Japan introduces a new series of outdoor functional products called the “Converse Camping Supply,” based on classic designs with updated outdoor specifications. The first three waves of low-cut kicks include an outdoor silhouette called Quake that originally released in 1992. The QAK CP has a white and cream or black colorway with an upper that utilizes Cordura materials created by using recycled materials. It also boasts high durability, water resistance, and stain resistance in the upper center and toes.

The next silhouette featured is the RSS CP, which utilizes nylon straps instead of laces. It also uses Cordura materials to create the body of the shoe. The running shoe is offered in a solid black or olive with orange accents to accentuate the design. Lastly, the final shoe is an evolution of Moc Shoes called the SPN CP. It combines Cordura and suede on the upper, which allows users to adjust the elasticity through the strap on the back of the shoe. The slip-on comes in black and sand.

The series will also launch with three satchels, wallets, and drawstring bags made with the same Cordura material used to create the aforementioned shoes. The accessories will be made alongside the Salt Lake City, Utah brand Gregory.

The Converse Camping Supply is expected to be released sometime in August alongside the shoes via the Converse Japan website. Both the QAK CP and RSS CP are expected to sell for ¥11,000 JPY (approximately $102.80 USD). The SPN CP will cost ¥9,000 JPN (approximately $84.11 USD). Meanwhile, the Gregory collaboration items are slated for an October release.
