American footwear brand, Converse All-Star, is celebrating its 100th anniversary, and at the same time, Hirohiko Araki’s Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure is celebrating its own 30th Anniversary. Now, they are coming together for a special collaboration, which has resulted in some special Jojo sneakers.
Part of the shoe brand’s All Star 100 line, Converse is releasing Jojo two designs. First, Part IV’s main antagonist inspires the design. Converse calls it the “All Star 100 OX / JO Yoshikage Kira model”. The shoe features black leather printed with the distinct skull mark seen on the tie that Kira usually wears. Meanwhile, the insoles feature Kira’s stand, Sheer Heart Attack.
Meanwhile, mangaka and Jojo creator Hirohiko Araki’s “ego” in the manga, Rohan Kishibe, inspires the second design. The design is called the All Star 100 WHI / JO Rohan Kishibe model, and it features the character’s signature. Inside, it also says “You can’t attack Rohan Kishibe”, which references to his stand power, “Heaven’s Door”. You can also see “Heaven’s Door” poking in the side of the shoe.
Premium Bandai is accepting pre-orders for these sneakers until 26 January 2017. The Kira model is priced at 23,760 yen (US$203), while the Rohan model at 12,960 yen. Now, which design would you want?
