—01. First String Standards.

Words

After the Converse Addict product received a warm welcome in Japan, it was only a matter of time before the western world was offered something similar. Featuring many of the original details from the classic 70s version of the Chuck Taylor All Star, we're very much looking forward to this spring release. The black hi-top and white lo-top versions are both available as of today through select retailers.

Converse Addict High

Info

—01. Burgundy hi.

Words

In the last year or so I have been wearing the Converse Addict shoes pretty regularly. The only pair from this fall's release I wanted was the burgundy high tops. In fact it was the only recent purchase that I knew I would eventually make. They're pretty much my perfect sneakers, just need a few colors.

The Anatomy of Converse Addict

I definitely wasn't the first one to jump onto the Converse Addict range, but now that I have, I've been trying to track down a few more pairs before they are gone in certain models. The shoes do reach a somewhat shockingly high price point for one of the most classic and available styles in the world. But the folks at Hypebeast have taken a little deeper look inside the shoe. For me, the more comfortable Vibram sole, the soft leather lining and the upgraded choice of canvas make this classic all the better, particularly in the all white low model.

Converse First String Matchpoint

01

Images

—01. Available in navy and grey.

Words

Converse is a classic brand and it always will be, but I haven't wanted to wear their products a whole lot in the past. A couple of pairs of Chucks have been in the closet at times, but it has been rare. Lately, I've been more interested since the Addict project came out. Now, I have to say that these Matchpoints are worth a look. The navy blue is a nice clean color and the lining looks like it might be comfortable without socks a couple months down the road.
