NEIGHBORHOOD X ConVERSE
The Collab game
The collaboration between Converse and Japanese brand Neighborhood, returns with a celebration of the One Star ’74 and Chuck ’70. The Converse x Neighborhood collaboration takes these two iconic silhouettes and modernizes them with streetwear, military workwear and motorcycle-inspired functionality. With roots in the motorcycle counterculture, Neighborhood designer Shinsuke Takizawa brings one-of-a-kind interpretations of motorcycle and military elements to all his products.
The One Star ’74 features a premium suede upper that is highlighted against a leather lining. A focal point of the sneaker, the classic Star Chevron is further enhanced with embellished details aka the devils pentagram while script adorns the foxing tape.
The Chuck ’70 celebrates the cultural crossroads of music and motorcycle lifestyle. With a rugged leather-infused canvas upper, the sneaker features a ‘gear shift’ toe overlay in both rubber and leather for extra resilience plus protection during motorcycle riding.
