When I think of iconic shoe brands, I think Nike, Adidas, Reebok and, of course, Converse--but sometimes even these labels have to shake things up. Enter Takahiro Miyashita's Converse redesign.

Taking the classic look and changing it up, leaving only the telltale star logo as an identifier, Takahiro Miyashita's Converse redesign is pretty rad. With some super-shaggy suede material and side-lacing, how could it not be? Retailing at $140 a pop, it better be. Stats for Shaggy Suede Shoes Trending: Older & Mild
