Success is synonymous with the Converse brand. From their dominance in the field of Basketball until everyone wanted to be Like Mike, to outfitting every musician worth their sorts including Kurt Cobain and most recently Tyler, the Creator amongst others. With that success comes the staple style. Every brand has one, and for Converse, it can only be one, the Chuck Taylor All-Star.
Using classic designs based on a build similar to the All-Stars used for basketball in the late 1960s and early 1970s, The Chuck 70s are the true homage to Chuck Taylor's original design and nower days occupy themselves as the contemporary wear of choice.
Although similar to the naked eye, the Chuck 70s reign as the premium iteration of Converse's signature silhouette. The 70s model features a vastly thicker canvas, higher rubber midsole and mudguard, thicker sole cushioning to the footbed, a smaller reinforced toe cap, stitched material to the lateral sides to reinforce the toe, a one-piece rubber bottom sole versus the three-piece sole on the modern All-Stars, and a black heel patch to symbolise this special edition.
From our current collection, we're happy to present a selection of special editions both dressed in distinctly different but classy materialisations.
The 'Reverse Terry' construction on the 70s Hi and Low brings a unique sporting feel to the silhouette, with a retro crewneck aesthetic hosted on the upper of the All-Star. For the Hi, it's a creamy monochromatic materialisation complete with White Wall foxing, tonal stitching and ribbed rope laces. For the low, it's a smattering of sage on whitewall that gives the shoe an incredibly clean and contemporary look, including tonal stitching and ribbed rope laces also.
On the other hand (or foot), our 70s selection is given a colourful kick with a pairing of two monochrome leather Chuck 70s hi. Displaying the same specs across the pair, the difference is in the shade. Dried Bamboo or Pale Coral? You can't go wrong with either in this premium leather offering.
