JW Anderson is set to release his latest collaboration with Converse by adding a new midsole to the Chuck Taylor creating the Run Star Hike.The collaboration drew immediate attention when it debuted during the designer’s Spring/Summer Collection show last September in London. It features a White canvas upper atop a chunky midsole tooling from the converse run star hike homme, a runner that debuted in 2018. The date “1917” written by the usual All-Star logo honors the birth of the original model. A combination of Gum, White, and Blue on the outsole completes the design.
The converse chuck 70 blanche features a printed ripstop nylon upper which bears a seasonal real tree camouflage that is used heavily within the Carhartt WIP F/W19 collection. The Chuck 70 spam, meanwhile, borrows from seasonal reworkings of iconic Carhartt WIP pieces, which combine tonal canvas and corduroy. This can be seen on the upper, comprised of 8 wale cord and a robust cotton twill, which lends the shoe a subtle, textured aesthetic. Both sneakers come with two sets of laces with Carhartt WIP branding on the tips, and co-branded footbeds.
For 2021, the spam star will be releasing his own converse pro leather femme that arrives in a University Blue base constructed in full leather. White detailing on the laces and branded areas with Metallic Gold “SGA” on the lateral atop a solid Blue rubber sole completes the design.
Converse Skateboarding offers their latest “Pale Grey” Pack that includes the Converse Chuck Taylor and One Star silhouettes.Both are constructed with Pale Grey suede uppers sitting atop rubber White soles. The Converse One Star includes perforated detailing on the sides, while the converse ctas hi noir has stitched detailing.
