Shinsuke Takazawa’s Japanese brand Neighborhood Technical Apparel (NHBD), who since 1994 has been creating some dope high-quality and concept clothing and really weird accessories inspired by streetwear, workwear, motorcycle and counter culture has teamed up with Converse for the first time to create a new take on two models: the Converse All Star Chuck Taylor 1970 and the Jack Purcell Johnny Mid.

The Chuck Taylor has been remade in a luxurious royal blue suede with white contrast stitching, toebox and outsole, and the Jack Purcell is reinvented in what they are calling a deep petrol blue leather, tonal stitching and a contrasting white midsole and toebox. Both sneakers feature a really nifty woven heel strip that references motorcycle culture and sings luxury. They also feature quality metal aglets emblazoned with the Neighborhood logo. Both pairs of sneakers will be available at Australian Converse first string accounts from November 2nd – which means Up There store in Melbourne, and APTMNT in Brisbane for RRP of $150aud.
