It’s one of the great ironies of modern fashion that many of the great homegrown brands like Porter release all their best gear in Japan. And, despite their recent move to Mexico, Converse is no exception.

Hypebeast just rounded up Converse’s ’09 collection, and we’re already considering expatriation. Mr. Varvatos aside, the stateside models have been downright drab lately…but apparently it’s a very different story across the Pacific.
