UPDATE (September 2, 12:20 p.m.):
Following a preview in July, Converse has officially unveiled its CONS CTS Ox collection. Made up of five different colorways, this collab features black, white, and navy looks along with two metallic striped styles in gold and silver. Details are subtle yet abundant, including branding at the midsole, heel, and even inside on the sockliner.
This five-sneaker collection will be releasing worldwide on September 11 for $80 apiece. Take a closer look at the entire range below.

Is there any sneaker that Hiroshi Fujiwara and his fragment design imprint can't improve upon? From retros like the Air Jordan 1 and Nike LD-1000 to more modern styles like the Sock Dart and KD 6 Elite, you'd be hard-pressed to find a misstep in the fragment resumé.
For its latest project, fragment turns its attention to one of the most significant shoes of all-time — the Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star. Technically, this model is actually the Converse CONS CTAS Pro, which is a Lunarlon-equipped update to the All-Star intended for skateboarding.
The first colorway, previewed by FNG Magazine, opts for a white canvas base with metallic gold striping. fragment design's signature branding appears at the midsole, while a translucent gum outsole rounds out the look.
But wait, there's more. Nice Kicks managed to screengrab a few now-deleted images from Hiroshi Fujiwara's account which reveal a metallic silver variation. There also appears to be a standard canvas version included in the collection.
Check them all out below and look out for these to appear at Converse retailers soon.
