Converse Releases Tokyo Police Club Sneakers

Another band Converse wanted for their Hund(Red) product line was the Canadian group Tokyo Police Club, formed in Ontario in 2005 by four high school colleagues.

They caught the attention of the Converse mangers thanks to the numerous praises from top magazines, including Rolling Stone, for their 2006 EP, A Lesson in Crime.

On their blog, they say that “Converse asked us to design a shoe for the (RED) cause, and we happily accepted!”. The shoes are only available in several stores, but you’ll definitely find them on Converse’s website.

Ten percent of al money raised from the sales of the Tokyo Police Club converse sneakers will go The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (Geneva, Switzerland).

Officially, the shoes are inspired by the power of a good system. They have a black leather upper with cool laser-etched graphic.

The top eyelets are red to suggest the association with PRODUCT (RED)™. All the other eyelets have the typical gray color. The foot bed is also red and the label is woven.

I like this pair. I think it’s really cool.
