Delving deep into their archives, Converse deliver their iconic Chuck Taylor All Star 70 in a series of archival colour palettes. Boasting similar aesthetics as their striking Brain Dead collaboration in 2018, the ‘Archive’ pack consists of four all-over print high-top silhouettes.
Ever since touching down in 1917, Converse has never been afraid to use a huge variety of different colours, patterns and materials on the legendary Chuck Taylor All Star. The 1970s editions feature slight differences that, at first, may only be recognisable to collectors and astute fans. Upon inspection, however, they feature a higher rubber foxing along the sole, added cushioning and a slightly more substantial toe box. In addition, they boast classic details such as enhanced stitching on the sidewall, a vintage licence plate on the heel and a super heavy-grade canvas upper.
Included within the archival pack: we’re treated to two animal print iterations which see the model dressed in leopard and zebra print designs. Next up, the brand resurrects its blue and white star splattered print. And finally, there’s a green and brown camouflage iteration. Each pair is crafted from a premium canvas and utilises OrthoLite® cushioning within the sole unit to ensure each of your steps is as comfortable as the last.
The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star 70s high ‘Archive Pack’ is available online now via the size? website and in size? stores, priced at £75, available in UK sizes 5 – 12 (including half sizes).[ratings]
