Converse may be most well-known for its heritage products like the Chuck 70 and One Star, but the Massachusetts-based brand has also been pushing the envelope with lifestyle and performance innovations, the latest result of which is a new CX line. Made up of three revamped takes on the classic Chuck Taylor — the All-Star Disrupt CX, Chuck Taylor Disrupt CX and Chuck Taylor All Star CX — the CX line is based around 3 F’s: form, fit and function.

These 3 F’s are provided by a trifecta of new materials. First up is CX stretch canvas, a supple-yet-durable synthetic that molds to the wearer’s foot and provides enhanced wearability. Next is a CX foam cushioning system, which combines PU insoles and Phylon midsoles for a double-stacked serving of comfort. Finally, a new outsole design proffers enhanced flexibility and durability.

All three silhouettes realize these material innovations in a different fashion. The All-Star Disrupt CX is the most conceptual of the bunch, boasting a classic high-cut Chuck upper and an exaggerated midsole with an extended heel counter and a cut-out midfoot. On the other hand, the All-Star CX offers a true-to-the-original Chuck style but uses CX canvas, foam and the new outsole design for a modern feel. Transparent foxing adds alternate style and shows off the new midsole tech.

Last but not least, the Chuck Taylor Disrupt CX combines a sleek, laceless upper with the extended heel of the All-Star Disrupt CX and the translucent stylings of the All-Star CX. Each is presented in a timeless mix of black, white and red. Apart from these in-line releases, there’s also a duo of TAKAHIROMIYASHITATheSoloist-crafted All-Star Disrupt CXs in white and black, each complete with special branding.

“CX allows Converse to create more functional, stylish and comfortable footwear than ever before,” says Brandis Russell the VP of Global Footwear at Converse. “In time, we plan to integrate its elements into every footwear product we make.”

TAKAHIROMIYASHITATheSoloist’s All-Star Disrupt CXs will kick things off with a release on March 12, and each of the three in-line models will follow on March 19 with a drop on the Converse webstore. Retail prices have yet to be announced.
