Converse sneakers are everywhere in Japan, so we were surprised to hear that this new 'studio' shop is actually the brand's first dedicated store in the country. Aiming to represent everything that goes into the 'Converse lifestyle', White Atelier boasts an extensive lineup, including some items sold only here. True sneakerheads will want to check out the basement, where you can create your very own All-Star design, tweaking it with text, patterns and colours before moving on to fine-tuning the laces and other accessories. As far as one-of-a-kind footwear goes, this spot is hard to beat – it even hosts occasional workshops with top creatives from both Japan and overseas.
