Converse‘s iconic Chuck Taylor All Star sneaker has been given a jaw-dropping woven upper in a design exclusive to the Asia Pacific market. The new rendition features a one-piece upper crafted from colored strips, offset against a clean white midsole and leather branding. Exclusive to the Asia Pacific region only, the “Color Weave” collection will be available at Converse stores in China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and South Korea from October 1; online at Converse China from October 8.

If you don’t have access to the Asia Pacific market then we suggest checking out Vans’ beautifully hand-woven sneakers, crafted using ancient techniques by Mexico’s Huichol tribe.
