Converse is relaunching another retro model, bringing back its 'Star and Bars' design to Japan.

The sneakers are offered in vibrant green and orange colorways, as well as a more subdued navy edition. The Star and Bars get its name from the pattern shown in the sides of the shoes -- with a single star shown in between two thick lines. The colored suede upper is contrasted with the white decor, laces and soles.

Clean white stitches pattern the uppers as well, giving the retro style a recognizable structure and offering the star design more depth. It's reported that Converse is bringing back the Star and Bars model, as well as some of its other classic designs, in response to an outpour of consumer demand.
