The latest pair of kicks you might find yourself going after are the Tenue de Nimes x Converse Chuck Taylor All-Stars.

Believe it or not, the Tenue de Nimes x Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star sneakers aren't actually a new model. The brands have taken the original model and asked the Manabe family from Okoyama in Japan to see if they'd dye it. After agreeing, Mr. Manabe set to work and used the traditional method of hand-dying to give the Chuck Taylor All-Stars a wonderful, natural-indigo color. The one little additional detail that each shoe has is the Tenue de Nimes cross that is embedded on the inner sole. These are extremely exclusive with only 50 pairs available, each of which have been numbered for authenticity. Stats for Hand-Dyed Indigo Kicks Trending: Older & Chilly
