Designed to showcase Converse’s most coveted product, the Converse First String collections are focused on original silhouettes, modern design, premium construction, high-level distribution and occasional collaborations with originals in art, design, fashion and culture. The Converse First String Standards collection is not done in collaboration, but is a collection of very special, hand-picked silhouettes mined from the Converse archives, and re-considered.
Using what is the signature Chuck Taylor All Star silhouette for First String, this shoe echoes the familiar Chuck, but has unique features like higher rubber rands, a vintage rubber license plate logo and a premium comfort system. Originally made for the military in the 1960s, the First String versions have a clean modern feel with monochromatic rubber outsoles and chambray uppers with contrast stitching. The Converse First String Standards Chuck Taylor All Star shoes will be available late February and come in low-top blue or black chambray versions. A purple version will debut later in the year. Look out for a release at Undefeated and Ubiq in the coming weeks.
