The Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star is arguably the greatest sneaker of all time. Sure, it has completely outdated cushioning, zero support, and relatively nothing that can be compared to modern sneakers, other than an outsole, an upper, and laces. Yet, over a century after its first introduction to the world, Chuck Taylors are still hugely important to sneaker culture (and fashion as a whole). While you might think that over the course of 105 years, no idea for a Converse Chuck Taylor is original but time after time, Converse and their collaborators bring fresh new ideas to the sneaker community.
Converse’s latest collaboration is with none other than the legendary surf brand that is largely responsible for starting the streetwear category, Stussy. Using one of the many iconic graphics from the Stussy Archive, with the “Surfman” logo found on the ankle of these pink-hued Chucks. By the way, if you ever find yourself in Santa Ana, California, Stussy has an archive store that showcases and releases vintage old stock products from the archives. For this release, the traditional Chuck Taylor All-Star ankle patch has been flipped to the inside of the shoe and Stussy’s “All-Star” logo resides front and center on the tongue. Look for these on the Converse website on September 1st.
