Where the runway meets the street

Today, ever popular skate shoe brand Converse presents the first in a series of updates to some of the brand’s most iconic sneakers, debuting with a fresh new silhouette dubbed the Converse All Star Modern. The collection, which includes both Hi and Ox versions of the sneaker, features circular knit uppers, a contoured full-length Phylon outsole, TPU-fused overlaid toecap, Nike Hyperfuse technology, and a neoprene split tongue and lining.

“The Converse All Star Modern is a perfect fusion of our sport heritage with modern design,” says Bryan Cioffi, Vice President/Creative Director of Converse Global Footwear. “With this collection, Converse is delivering a comfortable, lightweight product that’s new, exciting and modern, but still feels very Converse.”

As an introduction to the collection, creative team HTM – which consists of Hiroshi Fujiwara, Tinker Hatfield and Mark Parker – has designed a limited-edition iteration of the All Star Modern, complete with a premium goat leather upper, debossed All Star ankle patch and HTM logo on the heel pull tab. Watch our video above where we used HUV technology to demonstrate the shoe in action.

You can cop the Converse All Star Modern HTM sneaker, available in both black and white colorways, on June 9 at NikeLab retail stores worldwide and at a retail value of $180. The rest of the collection will drop on June 16 at Converse retail stores, and select pinnacle retailers, arriving in Action Red, Lucid Green, Soar Blue, and White colorways and selling between $130-$140.
