This limited edition release sees Converse heading in a different direction in the form of this collaborative project involving ‘Sak’ founder Ryusaku Hiruma.
The final outcome is a very special piece of craftsmanship which utilises premium materials and has a huge amount of attention to detail. Using the Dr. J Pro model, Hiruma creates a unique and inspiring new take this old time basketball shoe. Hiruma is known for his skill in age-old Italian footwear craftsmanship, which has been applied to great effect on this collaboration and the skill, design and artistry that is involved with this special subject area is more than evident on this release.
The upper is constructed of rich Italian leather, which is hand stitched, and combines effortlessly with the high quality leather outsole. Ink-printed logos, hand-stiching, leather laces, wrapped paper parcel, with official Sak stamp detailing are excellent finishing touches and all contribute to this unique release.
The Sak Dr. J Pro Leather is extremely limited, with only 24 pairs made worldwide. Luckily they are available from the good folks over at Foot Patrol now, who are the exclusive UK stockists.
