The Converse All Star Chuck ’70 is re-crafted sneaker that uses modern details to celebrate the original Chuck Taylor All Star from the 1970's. It features a slightly higher rubber foxing, a cushioned footbed that provides long-lasting comfort and a more substantial rubber toe cap. Additional vintage details include stitching on the sidewall and a heavier-grade canvas upper for comfort and durability. It’s an authentic throwback look that retains the iconic Chuck Taylor attributes you know and love, like the star-centered heel patch and vulcanized rubber outsole.
Converse began in 1908 as a rubber shoe company. And The Chuck Taylor All Star is the one that started it all for Converse. Created in 1917 as a non-skid basketball shoe, the All Star was originally promoted for its superior court performance by basketball mastermind Chuck Taylor. But over the decades, something incredible happened: The sneaker, with its timeless silhouette and unmistakable ankle patch, was organically adopted by rebels, artists, musicians, dreamers, thinkers and originals.
