UNDERCOVER and WTAPS Reunite for a Converse Chuck Taylor Collab

The rare three-way collaboration is finally here.

Ever since the UNDERCOVER x WTAPS x Converse Chuck Taylor first leaked at the start of September, sneakerheads everywhere have been beyond hyped for the rare three-way collaboration to drop, and now, it's finally here. Fusing Jun Takahashi's punk aesthetic with Tetsu Nishiyama's militaristic sensibilities, the sneaker is launching as part of the two-part "ONE ON ONE" capsule.

Painted in a stealthy "Black" colorway, contrast "White" stitching runs across the canvas upper for that classic Chuck Taylor look. While the medial side is decorated with the iconic "All Star" emblem, the laterals feature co-branded detailing and reference to the "ONE ON ONE" collection. This branding also extends to the oversized pull tab around the heel.

While the UNDERCOVER x WTAPS Chuck features the usual metal eyelet lacing system, it also boasts a zip as well for the ultimate lockdown fit. A rubberized cap makes its way to the front, and the midsole has been slightly heightened for a more commanding presence.

The UNDERCOVER x WTAPS x Converse Chuck Taylor High is set to release on October 1st. While these are currently going to be exclusive to Japan, they'll be available on Ox Street's dedicated Converse page very soon - so keep your eyes peeled!
