For the avid motorcycle fan in your life, these Converse X Neighborhood Motorcycle Chuck Taylors are heaven-sent.
Let’s face it, practically everyone has worn Converse Chuck Taylors at some point. (If you haven’t add that to your bucket list).
But up till Converse decided to collaborate with Neighborhood, motorcyclist had been kicked to the curb.
On this pair, Japanese designer Shinsuke Takizawa draws inspiration from the 70’s.
They combine elements from the timeless Chuck Taylor 70 and One Star 74 and add a touch of motorcycle aesthetic.
This pair retains the classic rubber toe cap and canvas upper but leather reinforcements here and there make it ideal for biking.
In addition to leather straps around the ankles, heel and eyelets, the sneakers have a foot shifter strap overlay.
Thanks to this elegant blend, not only do they represent the motorcycle culture better; they also protect your feet and keep the shoes in tip top condition.
What a perfect tribute to the motorcyclist’s iconic style and lifestyle
