Update your spring wardrobe with two adorable new takes on Converse's most iconic silhouette.

While it may be autumn here in Australia, America and Japan are currently welcoming in spring. This means that we can already draw some major fashion inspiration for the coming seasons by looking to brands based in these countries, and Converse's latest collection has already caught our eye.

Inspired by Japan's famous cherry blossom season, the sneaker label has just revealed two themed iterations of its Chuck 70 sneaker and you're definitely going to want to add them to your sneaker rotation.

Release date: Unknown

Price: US$95

Where to buy: Converse

Both a pink iteration with white 3D blossoms and a white iteration with pink blooms will be up for grabs, with each one encased in a sheer organza upper. The high-top designs will also get a clear ice blue rubber midsole, fuchsia outsole and premium leather panel at the forefoot.

Both styles are currently up for grabs on the US Converse website for US$95. While there's no word yet on when they'll land here in Australia, we can expect to see them on the Australian Converse site sometime in the coming month.

As many of the major Japanese cherry blossom festivals have been cancelled for this year due to Coronavirus fears, these kicks may be your only chance to celebrate the pink blooms, so we strongly recommend nabbing yourself a pair as soon as they land.
