The popular manga “JoJo's Bizarre Adventure” written by Hirohiko Araki teams up with Converse ALL STAR sneakers for the second time around.
Jotaro Kujo, the main character of part 3 of the manga series, is the motif for the new lineup. Japanese craftsmanship including Nishijin weaves is presented on the uppers to represent Jotaro’s nationality. “Ora Ora” patterns adorn the entire design, and the character’s trademark palm design decorates both sides of the sneaker. The insole is printed with an illustration of Jotaro and Star Platinum. In addition, the top eyelet holes are in the shape of a star, which is imaged after the Joestar family’s birthmarks.
Men’s sizes available from 25 to 30 cm (half-sizes until 28 cm) and women’s from 22 to 24.5 cm (in half-sizes). Priced at 11,000 yen. Orders can be placed from midnight on May 16 to June 15 on the website “2PMWORKS.” Deliveries are planned to be made at the end of December.
Part 1 of the collaboration, where the Stone Mask from part 1 and 2 of the manga series was introduced as motif, was released last June. The manga has also teamed up with OUTDOOR PRODUCTS to design daypacks and parkas and SEIKO SPIRIT SMART to design watches.
