This sneaker is so hot! old italian style leather on a vintage styled converse sneak.. whats wrong with that? nothing.. absolutely nothing.

By designer Ryusaku Hiruma of sak teamed up with converse to create this masterpiece.

“The Pro Leather shoe changed the basketball sneaker forever. It was worn by Dr J who ushered in the modern era of the game and, back-in the-day, the man and the shoe represented effortless style with remarkable technical skill. In that spirit, we are excited to debut this shoe which fuses sak’s unparalleled skills as a craftsman and the legendary Pro Leather shoe to create a stylish work of art,” says Ian Ginoza, Converse Director of First String and Special Projects.

Two iconic, uniquely American names team up on this sneaker collaboration.

Superman, the Man of Steel and benchmark for all superheroes, and Converse Chuck Taylor All Star, quite possibly the most popular and most worn sneaker in history.

This new ‘capsule’ sneaker collection comes in two different styles: a blue minimalist pair with Superman ‘S’ logo on the outer ankle of the shoe and a white/red/blue ‘comic book style’ pair that features illustrations of Kal-El doing his thing.

Both sneaker styles feature comic strip artwork of the Man of Steel in action on the inside.

If you ask me, this is a pretty cool collaboration between two American cultural icons.

Nice one!
