Givenchy’s creative director Riccardo Tisci lends his unique styling to the next release in the Converse Addict range. A black gloss leopard print has been added to an all black canvas which sits on top of a polyurethane Poron cushioned sole with a Vibram outsole. Add to that an Outlast lining and detailing such as rubber spikes down the back of the heel, you have a rather unique looking shoe. The jury is still out as to whether the use of these extra materials or the added build quality balances out the high price, but either way these shoes would certainly turn some heads. The Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci x Converse Addict All Stars receives a limited release in Japan on the 27th April for ¥29,400, about 300,00 US dollars.
