Converse PIVOT by Diffeducation are celebrating 10 years of Takehiko Inoue's manga 'Real' with the Converse Real Edition. 'Real' is a manga about wheelchair basketball players that has been serialized by Shueisha’s Young Jump.
The Converse Real Edition gives a manga makeover to the Converse Weapon Street Mid by decorating the inner tongues with portraits of characters from the manga. The shoe also features a more direct tribute to Real in the form of "Volume 10" sewn into the heel.
The Converse Real Edition manages to be a cool shoe and a piece of manga-tribute apparel all at the same time. It is no secret that most manga-branded apparel is a fashion nightmare, but this shoe manages to let you rep your favorite manga without looking like you just came from Comic-Con. Next up: DragonBall Z Nikes.
