sak x Converse First String – Chuck Taylor All Star

The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star is about as old school as it gets, with this pair akin to a pterodactyl kindergarten. The Converse x sak collection goes to show that yesterday’s standards become today’s premiums, as Ryusaku Hiruma turns his handcrafted Italian shoemaking magic to the longest enduring icon of athletic shoes. You can expect Jack Purcells, One Star 1974s and Star Techs on the way, all of which were built by hand. There are a mere 64 pairs of each color available worldwide, so the $600-$700 price range for this line doesn’t mean they won’t sell out immediately. For stateside sneakerheads, you can get them in the US exclusively at Opening Ceremony and Concepts. Check out a bunch more photos and video of Hiruma at work, all after the jump
