Converse has released a new version of the seminal Chuck Taylor All-Star shape, this time using Nike’s Flyknit technology. It’s no secret that Converse is owned by Nike and this isn’t the first time it has made use of Nike’s technology as it previously used a Lunarlon insole on the Chuck II. But this is still an important moment, marking the first time Flyknit has been used on a shoe that wasn’t labeled as Nike. Elsewhere, the shoe uses a neoprene lining and the aforementioned Lunarlon insole so that the shoe remains as comfortable as the Chuck II. The Chuck Taylor All Star x Nike Flyknit  is available in black and teal colorways and goes on sale at Converse’s web store on April 27.

Converse has been a busy company recently, with photographs from a possible NEIGHBORHOOD collaboration recently surfacing.
