Editor’s Notes: Converse has unveiled its SS19 footwear lineup, comprising three separate drops: a pack of Chuck 70s dressed in archival prints, a trio of suede Jack Purcells, and two retro ERX 260 Mid basketball sneakers.
The patterns on the Chuck 70s are duck camo, pink and black zebra stripes, leopard spots, and multi-colored flames. The “burnished” Jack Purcells feature a distressed and washed look on the upper, midsoles, and laces, giving the sneakers a worn look straight out of the box. They come in orange, washed lilac, and egret colorways.
The ERX is a chunkier basketball model from the Converse archive. First released in 1988, the ERX was packed with some of the most advanced sneaker tech of the era. Although the shoe was popularized by several Detroit Pistons players, it also “graced the feet of rock stars and skate legends,” according to the brand.
