Keep your cool this summer: modern innovation meets tradition with the introduction of Converse’s latest sneaker release in collaboration with Nike Flyknit.
When you hear the word ‘Converse’, you know what to expect – classic designs, a quirky colour palette and a revolutionary style, which has catapulted the name into a successful global brand.
Established back in 1908 in Boston, Massachusetts, this footwear sensation has built a reputation as ‘America’s Original Sports Company’, offering an assortment of shoes, apparel and accessories in over 160 countries around the world. The trademark design of the Chuck Taylor All-Star Converse is a worldwide phenomenon, loved by celebrities, personalities and the rest, who want a slice of comfort, with edge.
April 2017 marks the new iconic style of the definitive Chuck Taylor model; integrated with the principal Nike Flyknit technology, this pivotal step has created an overall spectacular piece of footwear for an already influential name.
This innovative move for the brand has allowed style to meet comfort with a bespoke, breathable micro-suede upper, to keep your feet cool and airy when the summer heat strikes.
With a sleek TPU-fused toecap, Nike Lunarlon sockliner and an assortment of colours (including Black/Storm Wind, Wolf Grey/Cool Grey, Green Glow/Rio Teal, Casino/Rhubarb, White Mono and True Indigo/Soar), your next shoe choice is clear. This collection is available now from select retailers and at Converse.com.
This is the first-time Converse have incorporated the leading Nike technology into their footwear and it is an epic pairing all round in time for a spring/summer debut.
