Once again Converse teams up with Japanese brand COMME des GARCONS PLAY. After previously having worked on the Chuck Taylor All Star Hi and Lo, as well as the Jack Purcell low top sneaker, the two brands now present a collection based on the Converse Pro Leather.
“Comme des Garçons’ Kawakubo designed the collection with PLAY’s signature quirky heart-with-eyes logo to create four new sporty versions of the iconic Converse Pro Leather. For this collection, a new all-over PLAY logo pattern was placed randomly to make each sneaker unique in design. The playful pattern celebrates the creative, irreverent sprit that is synonymous with both the Converse and Comme des Garçons brands.”
The COMME des GARCONS PLAY for Converse Pro Leather is available in Milk and Black Mid and Ox silhouettes. All styles will be available on Dover Street Market’s website and at the Comme des Garçons NYC store starting May 28, in Paris and London starting June 1 and at Comme des Garçons stores in Tokyo and throughout Asia starting June 21 for a suggested retail price of $130-$140.

Add in details like speckling on the heel and gradient aglets and the Supernova is downright dazzling.

Renowned around DJ circles as King of Diggin’, Muro is the mastermind behind his production company, King Of Diggin’ Production, and select store, DIGOT.

This year’s t-shirts combine the trademark graphics from Stussy and DJ motifs from yesteryear. Huge gold chain and a hat accessorize their staple skull & bones graphic, while the phrase on the back reads Diggin’ Tough Inna Rub A Dub Style. Both black and white versions are sold exclusively at DIGOT flagship store in Tokyo and through their webshop.
