Converse‘s iconic Chuck Taylor All-Star Hi is a tried-and-true summer staple, a shoe with unyielding popularity among children and adults alike. For Spring/Summer 2019, the heritage sneaker label subverts the substantial ’70s iteration with a trio of headturning seasonal colorways.

Like JW Anderson’s recent “Toy” pack, these three Chuck Taylors boast gummy-looking translucent rubber midsoles, adding a splash of color to the lower portion of the classic shoe. Furthermore, each of these three models features a different pattern on the lightweight cotton uppers, with complementary Converse badges on the lateral side of each design.

A trio of American flag-inspired colors grace the first silhouette, with red, white and “Converse Blue” color-blocked across the upper, finished off with white rope laces and a pale blue midsole. Next up is a Chuck Taylor covered entirely in warm-hued plaid. Shades of red, green, brown and blue inform the pattern, offset by white contrast stitching and a pink midsole. Finally, a monochrome sneaker sports a black midsole and laces against its deconstructed-looking upper. A patchy white-on-black pattern adds visual texture, which is completed by a stitched-on black strap and tonal silver Converse badge.

Shop the adventurous seasonal Chuck Taylors on SSENSE’s site.

Recently, Converse’s signature footwear model was upgraded with lush suede and RIRI zippers.
