Givenchy Collaborates With Converse

Givenchy is giving Converse’s Chuck Taylor All Star sneakers a chic makeover, and honestly, we’re quite jealous. The special shoes are part of the Converse Addict line, which is sold exclusively in Japan. These collector's items are a serious upgrade from the classics and feature temperature adjustable lining, detachable insoles and waterproof and wear-resistant soles. Givenchy’s artistic director Riccardo Tisci’s signature touches, including the leopard print motif (direct from the men’s Spring/Summer 2011 collections), studs, and crosses make these irresistible to funky fashionistas worldwide. Now we’ve just got to figure out a way to get our hands on a pair of these when they hit stores in Japan on April 27th. Let the Ebay hunt begin! ~Valis Vicenty
