Converse All Star Ukiyoe Woodblock Print Hi Wave

Famous Japanese artwork design high-top sneakers

The Converse All Star Ukiyoe Woodblock Print Hi Wave is a proof of two things. First, that the imagination of Converse's designers has no limits when it comes to creating new and exciting combinations for what is arguably the world's most famous basketball shoe. And second, that there's no object produced in Japan that hasn't at some point featured Katsushika Hokusai's Great Wave Off Kanagawa, hands down the most famous picture in his Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji series and probably the most iconic ukiyoe woodblock print ever.

Hokusai's work is all over the Converse All Star Ukiyoe Woodblock Print Hi Wave: thanks to the composition of the work, it fits great on the high shape of the shoes across both the inner and the outer side, interrupted only by the classic star logo ankle patch. Instead of the usual canvas, this shoe is made of cotton and is available in four sizes, ranging from 22 cm (US 5, EU 35) to 27.5 cm (US 9, EU 43). A one-of-a-kind model exclusive to Japan and an instant classic!
