Few items of attire are as emblematic of the US and particularly its postwar culture as Converse's All Stars, aka Chuck Taylor All Stars. Light, easy to maintain, durable and affordable, these century-old shoes have become part of various waves of youth culture often having nothing to do with sports, and can now be found in wardrobes all over the world. What Chuck Taylor Canvas All Star J Hi brings fresh to the concept, though, is a rare combination: the classic American design plus Japanese manufacturing know-how.
The Japanese also love their All Stars. But they also love making things and paying an almost superhuman attention to detail. And their take on the classic American shoes, the Chuck Taylor Canvas All Star J Hi, reflects that: top-quality canvas, top-quality rubber for the outsole, and great craftsmanship on the cutting, stitching, gluing, assembling and even packaging! Available in black or white, and in a variety of sizes, the Japanese version of this vintage shoe is really exceptional. Regardless of how many pairs of All Stars you already have, you really need at least one of these!
