Ryusaku Hiruma Recreates Classic Converses

I am currently wearing a pair of Converse All-Stars and let me tell you, they are not nearly as beautiful as the ones Ryusaku Hiruma has been creating. My feet feel shame and envy at the same time.

Ryusaku Hiruma has created a beautiful shoe here. Styled along the lines of the original Chuck Taylors, these shoes are handmade by Ryusaku Hiruma himself with real leather. Pleather be damned.

These classic kicks will cost you a pretty penny, they start at $600, and are only available in a limited number from Opening Ceremony. I need these shoes now. Stats for Retro Leather Sneakers Trending: Older & Warm
