Converse is a household name in the world of sneakers, synonymous with classic style and timeless comfort. While the brand's recent releases continue to appeal to a broad audience, Converse Japan is offering something extraordinary by collaborating with Regal Shoe & Co., renowned for its meticulous craftsmanship in leather shoes. Bringing us a luxurious version of the iconic All-Star Coupe, the duo has crafted a Premium Ox rendition of the silhouette that appears more like a dress shoe than an athletic sneaker.
This collaboration with Regal Shoe & Co. aims to blend tradition with innovation, using Regal's historically rich approach to footwear design. The All-Star Coupe J Premium Ox "Black" is crafted with the highest quality materials in Japan, right down to the smallest detail. Reflecting Regal's commitment to "long-use," the pair features Vibram soles that are entirely replaceable, promising excellent comfort and remarkable durability. The shoe is constructed using the traditional Norwegian welt method, known for its use in mountaineering and military shoes, underscoring its sturdy and reliable quality. It comes in a singular shade of black, offering a versatile yet distinguished look. As an additional luxurious touch, the packaging includes a specially designed box and bag featuring both the Regal and Converse logos side-by-side.
The Regal Shoe & Co. x Converse All-Star Coupe J Premium Ox Black will release September 8, 2023, through Converse Japan and select retailers online and in-store. Coming in men’s sizing, the retail price is set at approximately $470.
