    A follow up to the Converse Spring ’07 collaboration with Junya Watanabe Man, Comme des Garcon’s Rei Kawakubo worked closely with Converse, a subsidiary of Nike, to create the four-style collection that will hit select retailers at the end of this month. It includes two hi-top and two oxford versions of the Chuck Taylor All Star in black or white canvas and features the Comme des Garcons Play heart logo. The cotton canvas shoes also feature retro-looking high rubber rands. All shoes will retail for $100 and will be available in unisex sizing.
