On February 15th Converse will debut its First String 1970s Chuck Taylor All Star Collection. Subtle at first sight, we love the idea that the Converse team has turned around here – the “70s Chuck” is re-crafted to the specifications of the Chuck Taylor All Star of the ‘70s.
“The 1970s Chuck Taylor All Star collection features slight differences that, at first, may only be recognizable to collectors and astute fans; however, upon careful inspection the sneaker features slightly higher rubber foxing along the sole, added cushioning and a slightly more substantial toe box. Additional vintage details include stitching on the sidewall, a vintage license plate on the heel and a super heavy-grade canvas upper.
The original classic black and white sneakers will be available globally on Friday, February 15. Other original colors by Converse in sunflower and crimson, will be available globally in April and additional colors will follow in July.”
Look out for the first release of the sneakers this weekend.
