Following a monochrome collaboration earlier this year, Converse and Jun Takahashi's Undercover showcase their extreme vision of footwear for a new era. Representing Takahashi's fictional youthful tribes, "the New Warriors" - inspired by the iconic 1979 film "The Warriors" - this duo of Chuck Taylor 1970s sneakers contort baseball style into the perfect amalgamation of cult references and street-ready aesthetics.
Presented with a pre-distressed look to emulate the look of a lifestyle causing mayhem on the streets, Walter Hill's film continues to inspire Takahashi with its unrepentant approach to gang codes and visual sensibilities. Cast in a dark camouflage, this pair are embellished with the collaboration's signature d-ring attachments for a hit of bondage inspiration. Rounded off with the embroidered emblem of the New Warriors, Converse's design DNA is enshrined in Takahashi's cult-appeal and mastery of world-building.
