Takahiro Miyashita’s Number (N)ine label took creative license with two different Converse models and came up with this collection, which is set to release on March 13th. Modifying both a One Star and Chuck Taylor All Star, Number (N)ine’s efforts resulted in some very unique creations.
The yellow shoe started life as a One Star ’74 and has been dressed in yellow and sits on a white sole. The other shoe displays a light grey color and the same sole. Both use asymmetrical lacing systems, which Takahiro borrowed from the Converse Odessa trainer, which he admired as a child. The full list of retailers selling this shoe can be seen here.
