The Star Tech from Converse First String is a heritage-inspired silhouette with an innovative lightweight sole. Implementing a classic cupsole, the design utilizes a Lunarlon foam drop-in, while a rubber-wrapped midsole maintains Converse’s telltale vulcanized look. The outsole pattern evolves what began on the Star Tech sneaker’s predecessor the Straight Shooter, a ’70s sneaker that borrowed from All-Star DNA. The iconic-made-modern vibe continues on the Star Tech’s retro-tech nylon upper which features sharp triangular accents and suede detailing on the toe box, heel and medial overlays. Finished with the Star Chevron logo and a cotton terry lining, the kicks borrow some advanced technology from big brother while still retaining the classic Converse look. These are now available through finer Converse First String accounts.
