Converse Brings the 1920s All Star Into 2016

Hiroshi Fujiwara, Tinker Hatfield, and Mark Parker are at it again with a new HTM release and this time they’ve grabbed a pair of Converse’s latest model: the All Star Modern. Based on 1920s All Star, the new version gets a modern upgrade complete with Nike Hyperfuse, a full-length Phylon outsole, a TPU-fused overlaid toecap, and a neoprene split tongue. This all combines to create a lightweight sneaker in a minimalist interpretation of the All Star silhouette. The HTM version we’re highlighting here will feature goat leather uppers and is the first shoe from HTM to not wear a Swoosh. The shoe will be available at NikeLab online and NikeLab retail stores on June 9th.
