They were designed in the image of “Jotaro Kujo”, the first Japanese character to appear in “JOJO’S BIZARRE ADVENTURE”. You will be pleased with such luxurious “Nishijin silk fabrics” on the outside of the shoes, which is a Japanese traditional textile technique.
The arrangement of colors outside of the shoes is navy and gold, which change with the dynamics on how light reflects off them.
They are made as a premium item, based on one of Converse’s staple model, “OX”.
