Converse is getting some serious fashion glam with today’s launch of the Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci × CONVERSE ADDICT crossover. These collector’s items go on sale today and feature temperature adjustable lining, detachable insoles and waterproof and wear-resistant soles. Givenchy’s artistic director Riccardo Tisci works in his leopard print motif shown in the men’s S/S 2011 collection by adding a black gloss leopard print to the shoes. (You can’t really see it in this picture but click after the cut to see the print) Rubber spikes also run down the back of the shoe. Unfortunately, these babies are only available in Japan so if you are hoping to score a pair, eBay might be your best bet.
The Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci x Converse Addict All Stars receives a limited release in Japan today for ¥29,400.
