Converse Gives Its Classic Chuck 70 Hi a Lenticular Glow

Dominating basketball courts in the ‘70s, heritage sneaker brand Converse has revisited the original design for its classic Chuck Taylor silhouette. Having dropped its Carhartt WIP collab and teased a Rick Owens partnership, Converse has now given the All-Star Chuck 70 Hi a glow with its latest lenticular colorway.

Adding a modern twist to the iconic sneaker, the canvas is swapped out for premium leather uppers, a higher footbed for added cushioning and archival rubber taping. The multi-colored lenticular is toned down by the black stitching, a full-length black tongue, matching laces and a woven heel tape. For this iteration, the signature Chuck Taylor stamp receives a tonal makeover embossed into the ankle collar with the trademark rear plate also coming in a black background to complement the jet black outsole.

The Converse All-Star Chuck 70 Hi is now available on the Offspring website retailing for £74.99 GBP (approximately $103 USD).
