With roots in athletics and the military, Converse became a poster child for American footwear pretty much since its inception all the way back in 1908 in Malden, Massachusetts. However, it was the landscape of post-WWII America where the company and its breadwinner, the Chuck Taylor became the sneaker — a reputation it would hold on to arguably to this day. From athletes and GIs to rockers and skateboarders, Converse sneakers were an equalizer embedded into the DNA of societal style with an arsenal of iconic styles which remain the gold standard.
By 1970, the Chuck Taylor All Star evolved into one of the best basketball sneakers, ever. The Chuck 70 celebrates that heritage by bringing archival-inspired details together with modern comfort tech. Ortholite insole cushioning and winged tongue stitching take comfort up a notch, while our glossy, egret midsole brings out the 70's vibes.
