East meets West in the new CLOT for Converse First String “Chang Pao” Collection, with two versions of the 1970s Chuck Taylor All Star giving a nod towards traditional Chinese garb. Arriving in time for Converse’s Holiday ’13 season, this is the fifth time the two brands have collaborated, this time drawing direct influence from the Chang Pao traditional Chinese formal wear dating back to the Qing Dynasty.

The collection will be available in limited quantities beginning on Thursday, October 31 at the exclusive Juice Pop-Up store in Los Angeles at 7667 Melrose Ave, the only US retailer to feature the product. The product will also launch at Juice in Hong Kong, Shanghai, Taipei and Kuala Lumpur on Saturday, November 2 and at select Converse First String retailers across the globe on Friday, November 8.
