Model: Run Star Hike in black and the Americana Chuck 70
Key Features: The Run Star Hike’s upper is taken from the traditional canvas Chuck Taylor, while a Run Star sole with a sawtooth tread is added for a more rugged, outdoorsy look. The Americana Chuck 70 is the iconic silhouette as we all know it, except with an American flag graphic application. That same print was first introduced on Converse footwear in 1991 and returns 28 years later with a JW brand monogram grid serving as its base.
Release Date: April 18
Price: TBC (likely $155 for the Run Star Hike and $110 for the Chuck 70)
Editor’s Notes: Converse and JW Anderson continue their long-standing partnership with a two-sneaker release. The Run Star Hike, which turns the iconic Chuck Taylor into an all-terrain boot thanks to a bulky, sawtooth-tread sole, returns in black, while the Chuck 70 is outfitted in a JW monogram and an archival American Flag graphic print.
Both styles are set to drop globally at Converse and select retailers on April 18. Stay tuned for pricing information.
