One of Tokyo’s most notable lifestyle brands has joined forces with Converse to bring us the new NEIGHBORHOOD x Converse First String Collection. The NBHD collection features two of Converse’s most iconic staples; the Jack Purcell Johnny Mid and All Star Chuck ’70 Ox in very premium iterations. The Jack Purcell is built out in deep petrol blue leather with tonal stitching, while the All Star Chuck ‘70 has a plush royal blue suede upper with white contrast stitching.

Both have clean white midsoles and toecaps, allowing the seemingly basic color blocking to stand out while complimenting many seasonal looks. But where the All Star Chuck ‘70 loses its traditional rand stripe, the Jack Purcell retains its signature toe-smile. Each sneaker comes with canvas linings, metal eyelets and an extra set of contrast cotton laces, as well as NEIGHBORHOOD branded metal lace tips that add a premium detail to their finish. Bringing to life the subtle play on luxury that is synonymous with the NEIGHBORHOOD brand, tonal woven heel strips run vertically up the back of each sneaker, adding a refined feel to the two-pair collection. Available in store at our Gastown location only tomorrow Friday OCT 25th, if any pairs remain after the in store release, we will open them up online here.
