There is not a shadow of a doubt that the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Shoe ranks among the most iconic sneakers of all time. Its unchanged silhouette for almost a century is a testament to the power of game-changing design that remains unrivalled to this day. With its hordes of fans across generations and geographies, and its deep ties to music, art, film and culture, this timeless sneaker has been there, done that and then some. But all that is about to change.
For the first time ever, Converse has made a radical shift in its design by collaborating with parent company and sports titan Nike to create the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star X Nike Flyknit High Top Shoe. Incorporating Nike’s proprietary Flyknit material that’s seen most often in its running and lifestyle shoes, Converse adds breathability, comfort and support to its classic Chuck Taylor All Star Shoe. After using Nike’s Lunarlon cushioning in the Chuck Taylor All Star II Shoe, this uniting of technology and design almost feels inevitable. What’s unexpected is how amazing it looks and feels on the feet.
The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star X Nike Flyknit High Top Shoe features a Nike Flyknit upper that provides breathable support with just the right amount of structure and flexibility in all the right places. Its neoprene lining makes it comfortable to wear, as a sleek TPU fused toecap enhances durability while keeping it lightweight.
A Nike Lunarlon insole cushions the foot against impact, while a classic vulcanized rubber outsole delivers a solid grip. A signature Chuck Taylor All Star heel patch adds an authentic vintage look to the shoe’s modern minimalist design, evoking a sense of nostalgia while staying grounded.
With a new spin on this classic silhouette, Converse and Nike have updated an icon for modern trends and challenges.
