With a little help from Japanese pop culture fans (and also college students and aspiring artists on a very tight budget), instant ramen has become a worldwide phenomenon with countless flavors. Purists, though, and there are many of them in Japan, still believe that the original Cup Noodle is still the best. If they want to mix things up, they go for the second most popular choice, the Seafood Cup Noodle. This is exactly what Converse chose for a special model that pays tribute to Nissin's classic instant ramen: the result is the Converse All Star Seafood Cup Noodle Hi!
The key element in the Converse All Star Seafood Cup Noodle Hi is the color blue, a major component of the Seafood Cup Noodle packaging. It appears in the instant ramen logo on the outer side of the shoes, the main shoelaces (there's also a spare set in bleached white), the pull tabs featuring the same nutritional info printed on the Cup Noodle, and in various lines and stitching all over the shoes. But there are also some generic Cup Noodle touches, like the "Converse All Star" legend at the star logo written using the iconic Cup Noodle font. See if you can spot them all!
