Combining time-honored tradition with forward-looking innovation, Converse is tapping Nike for a new release: The Chuck Taylor All Star x Nike Flyknit Collection renders the almost 100-year-old high-top in lightweight Flyknit material.
This marks the very first time that Converse incorporates breathable Flyknit into its footwear. Following in the tradition of updating the classic Chuck Taylor All Star – including the recent Prime Star collection – the collection will release on April 27.
Color choices include Black/Storm Wind, Wolf Grey/Cool Grey, Green Glow/Rio Teal, Casino/Rhubarb, and White Mono True Indigo/Soar while all models sit on an all-white midsole. For added tech, the shoes implement a TPU-fused toe cap and a Nike Lunarlon sockliner.
Despite the addition of technical Flyknit, these “Chucks” look surprisingly classic and understated. The heather grey and all-white models are especially timeless and transcend effortlessly from day-to-day wear into the nightlife.
The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star x Nike Flyknit Collection will be available on April 27 on the Converse website select retailers worldwide.
