The Anatomy of Converse Addict



—01. Photographs by Saki Tagami.


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.

Although I love Vibram contributing to Converse.. the price of these seem outrageous to me!! The Vibram sole and Outlast lining really skyrocket the price eh?
