Recently, Vancouver’s Inventory were presented the chance to produce a sneaker with the much-loved brand Converse. Rather than produce their take on one of the more ubiquitous models like the Chuck Taylor or Jack Purcell, Inventory chose to work with the One Star Academy – the modern update of the Jack Star, a classic 1970’s shoe. Inventory have made the most of this opportunity. The result is a cleaner sneaker in a number of ways compared to its more famous cousins, particularly the absence of any stripe on the midsole, which fits in nicely with Inventory’s clean aesthetic. This version is a leather lined, tonal sneaker coming in two colorways, either antique white or navy blue suede. It also fits a little large, so size down by a half size if you’re looking to buy online. The shoe is now available in either physical Inventory Stockroom as well as on their site in antique white or in blue suede.
