It’s not an exaggeration to conclude that most of us owned at least a pair of Converse at some point of our lives and I can bet that you probably have a pair tuck away somewhere right now.
With a 100-year history, the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star is a timeless iconic brand. It has gone from the world’s most prevalent basketball sneaker to a lifestyle staple worn by countless artist, celebrities and fashionista.
Converse has been keeping itself relevant, constantly innovating but at the same time, staying true to its origin. Currently, there are four key models making up the Chuck Family. Each offering is an evolution from the previous, reiterating individuality and self-expression.
Chuck Taylor All Star: The Beginning
The one that started it all and created a legacy ever since. A classic cotton canvas with a vulcanized rubber sole and the timeless All Star ankle patch, this simple basketball silhouette was favorable with athletes in the mid-60s and it eventually grew into a style icon that signified creativity and an independent spirit. Till this day, the classic canvas sneaker is still a hit and can even be found on the feet of the biggest names in art and music.
Chuck Taylor All Star ’70: The Throwback
With a vintage touch, the throwback sneaker draws on modern details to celebrate the original All Star from the 1970s. Built from 12oz and 100% organic canvas, the sneaker features an updated Ortholite cushion for extra comfort and a thicker rubber sole to bring this classic to the present.
Chuck Taylor All Star II: The Sequel
A sequel to the classic, the Chuck Taylor All Star II has the same silhouette you know and love; what differs is that the Converse All Star patch is no longer stamped but embroidered, even the shoelace eyelets are not silver but monochrome without the shiny effect. Combined with the Nike Lunarlon insole, the user experience is definitely unparalleled.
If you are looking for something as good as the original but with a minimalistic contemporary finish – then look no further.
Chuck Taylor All Star Modern: The Evolution
Adding a modern, elevated twist to the original, the Chuck Modern is a look into the future, without altering the All Star heritage. The lightweight build of the sneaker is prefect for those who are gone all day long and need comfort with the updated full-length Phylon sole unit.
The monochromatic colour scheme adds an elegance and premium take to the otherwise simple sneaker – an instant classic that Converse can build its All Star legacy on.
Converse Modern Lux are available at selected Converse Store Singapore from now.
