Virgil Abloh's Converse Chuck Taylor Finally Has a Supposed Release Date

The wait is nearly over.

By //Footwear

After staying out of the limelight for a few months, Virgil Abloh‘s remastered Converse Chuck Taylor may re-release sooner than fans thought. Though it wasn’t part of the recent “The Ten” drops, the shoe did initially launch last year when Abloh’s collection first debuted as part of the “Ghosting” shoes. These Nikes offered translucent uppers along with the usual quotation marks & black text seen on the other models. An orange zip-tie adds a pop of color, complementing the icy outsole.

Mark your calendars for the sneaker’s purported release on May 10 and stay tuned for the official announcement from Nike.

Elsewhere, we discussed the racial implications behind Abloh’s Louis Vuitton appointment.
