Converse Japan draws in the expertise of NIGO, a local style icon to adorn his own design cues across the signature Chuck Taylor All Star Zip Hi sneakers. The new version is complete in a beige colorway and construction of suede materials across the uppers.

The collaborative footwear design is re-constructed to stand from a functional perspective, adding an additional zipper for further enclosure adjustments. There is also the incorporation of a Poron insole to deliver comfortable elements. The sneaker is lined with a thermo-insulated Outlast and sits on top of a reinforced Vibram sole unit at the foundation. At the right tongue, there is a tag that reads "Player's Name," complete with a retro heel label at the rear and wide surface cotton lacing systems.
