Converse debuts its First String Standards 1970s Chuck Taylor All Star collection. Borrowing subtle details of sneakers from the era when Converse was celebrated by iconic rock ‘n’ rollers, basketball legends who have won championships and skateboarders that have ripped pools. The 1970s Chuck Taylor All Star collection features slight differences that, at first, may only be recognizable to collectors and astute fans; however, upon careful inspection the sneaker features slightly higher rubber foxing along the sole, added cushioning, and a slightly more substantial toe box. Additional vintage details include stitching on the sidewall, a vintage license plate on the heel, and a super heavy-grade canvas upper. The original classic black and white sneakers will be available globally on Friday, February 15. Other original colors by Converse in sunflower and crimson will be available globally in April and additional colors will follow in July. The 1970s Converse Chuck Taylor All Star will launch at Concepts Cambridge in Massachusetts, JUICE in Shanghai, Foot Patrol in London, and HAVEN in Canada for a suggested retail price of $70-$85 USD.
