Following the introduction of the popular One Star Loafers, Converse reconnects with New York-based graphic artist Toya Horiuchi for a special take on the CS Loafer SK. Dressed in antique red-brown leather uppers, the upcoming pairs reference Toya’s distinct “NEW YORK” typography on the matte gold plaque attachments.

The rounded vamp and overall form give the impression of dress shoes, though the double-taped rubber midsoles and edged outsoles below give it away. Additional details include CHEVRON & STAR logos imprinted on the heel and the addition of React SK technology, a high-performance cup insole for skateboarding, with retro Converse branding in gold.

The Toya Horiuchi x Converse Loafers will be available on November 29 via Converse Japan for ¥16,500 JPY (approximately $118 USD).

Elsewhere in footwear, StockX removes “Verified Authentic” tags from product listings.
