The Converse Japan February pack features the unlikely combination of flowers, sand and stripes.

Japan is a massive sneaker market that most people in the West never consider. They often get sneaker releases before the United States and are well known for their affinity for extreme designs and patterns. Japan also has the luxury of receiving a lot of limited releases exclusive to that country. Due to such an intense love of sneaker and sneaker design, Converse now has packs dedicated to Japan's influence.

The Converse Japan February pack brings several distinct flavors to the table including floral print, sandy brown leather suede, pinstripes and denim high top Chuck Taylors. Some detailing also includes zipper straps.

These sneakers don't follow the plain models Converse is classically known for, but then again Japanese sneaker sensibilities are anything but plain. Stats for Eccentric Japanese High Tops Trending: Older & Mild
