Try as they might, Missy Elliot and Timbaland were mostly unsuccessful when it came to integrating punk rock aesthetics into hip-hop culture in the early 00s.  Given the proximity of this attempt, Cam-Ron’s Purple Haze and G- joints including Units and Codes, you might read this new purple Converse Chuck Taylor All Star ‘G-STUD’ as a nearly spilled cup inside your candy paint car three-wheeling through turn of the century street culture.  And though the Japanese are noted connoisseurs of American pop output, it’s more likely that the name is a coincidence, that purple is just a single color in this trio and that G-STUD(s) are the golden rivets on the top eyelet and heel stripe. The explanation is relatively straightforward, but getting a pair of these will be somewhat less so given the need for an overseas connect to aid in grabbing these from select Converse Japan Converse Japan retailers.
