Tokyo’s BEAUTY & YOUTH continue their bespoke initiative for Converse with two premium takes on the Chuck Taylor All Star Hi. Available in two colorways, “Olive” and “Beige,” the iconic silhouette undergoes a few subtle changes, including the removal of a foxing stripe and the use of cotton flat-string laces, that only the Japanese retailer could fathom doing. Less understated is the employment of a suede upper, which is characteristic of BEAUTY & YOUTH’s refined sensibilities. Classic elements of the shoe remain so as to keep the All Star Hi familiar to fans. Additional details include a BEAUTY & YOUTH custom logo on the insole. Look for these suede variations to make their way online and in stores beginning early March.
