Editor's Notes: Vintage-inspired sneakers are scoring some serious wins in 2021, and as big advocates for making sure your sneakers get all of the on-foot love they deserve, we couldn't be happier.

Everyone is getting in on the action – New Balance's 2002R Protection Pack opted for the deconstructed, worn to death style of vintage, while Nike's upcoming "Aged Navy" Dunk Lows took a subtler approach to mark the incoming wave of yellowing soles.

Converse's turn for some pre-loved feels has arrived courtesy of the Seoul-based brand, thisisneverthat. An aesthetically aptly named "New Vintage," the collection plates up the One Star and Chuck 70 in a desirable palette of off-white and navy.

Both styles have been built using a hairy, worn-out-looking suede inspired by the golden years of '90s sportswear. For the Chuck 70, the off-white coloring of the upper is contrasted with yellow-stained soles and a matching toebox, giving them the allure of your parent's favorite pair of back-of-the-loft sneakers.

For the One Star, the uppers take on the appearance of a pair of black shoes that have been run through the washing machine a few too many times or taken a fair few beatings playing football.

Both silhouettes are finished with printed text and numbers on their midsoles, courtesy of thisisneverthat.
