Converse 1970 Chuck Taylor All Star Suede Collection
It was only 4 months that Converse released the Chuck Taylor All Star II – an incredible 98 years after its predecessor – and trainer geeks around the world lost their minds. While it’s not of that magnitude, the latest release from Converse and Chuck is rather lovely and comes in the form of 1970 All Star Suede Collection!
Using the specifications of an era when Converse was celebrated by anyone who had an ounce of cool about them, like rock stars and championship winning basketball legends, the Converse 1970 Chuck Taylor All Star has been re-imagined with suede for a stylish contemporary Joe.
Although the collection does use specs from the 70s trainer, there are some subtle differences that only aficionados will probably notice. Firstly, they feature a higher rubber foxing along the sole, a slightly more substantial toe box and also possess some added cushioning, which if we’re honest, a Converse has always really needed!
The profile in general, however, is much the same and as sleek as they were back then. But this modern update is made with some premium suede, which we love. They still include classic details such as enhanced stitching on the sidewall, a vintage license plate on the heel and a super heavy-grade canvas upper.
The low profiles in the Converse 1970 Chuck Taylor All Star Suede Collection are available in Orange and Black suedes, while the high tops come in Red and Blue. The collection can be found online at various sites including Size? where prices start at £70.
