American pioneers Converse and Levi’s have come together to produce an exclusive sneaker with Japanese retailer Beams. The shoe is a low-top classic All Star style but replaces the traditional canvas upper with another fabric we all know and love. You guessed it: raw denim.
It’s made with raw selvedge denim from none other than Cone Mills and you can see the red-line selvedge detailing at the back heel. Other than that, the details of the All Star remain unchanged- a vulcanized sole is attached to the upper which is outfitted with metal eyelets and a rubber cap toe. The difference is noticeable but not over-the-top and could make for some interesting fades and repairs down the line.
The release is set for February 9th and will be available exclusively at Beams stores.
