Some Converse Throwback Crafts:

Chuck Taylor All Star Origins:

The All Star origins was created in 1917 as a non-skid basketball shoe, the All Star was originally promoted for its superior court performance by basketball mastermind Chuck Taylor. But over the decades, something unbelievable happened: The sneaker, with its timeless silhouette and unmistakable ankle patch, was organically adopted by rebels, artists, musicians, dreamers, thinkers and originals.


Converse introduced a brand-new take on comfort and mobility, the Converse Aeon Active CX creates ergonomic comfort and security out of future-facing design. Which is a combo mesh and elastic stretch-bootie upper makes for a breathable, comfortable fit, and the innovative construction from upper to footbed maximizes support.

The heel pull and TPU heel wedge allows for easy on and off, while a sculpted CX midsole and a PU drop-in CX foam ensure an incredibly lightweight, comfortable ride.


The Chuck 70 is built off of the original ’70s design, with premium materials and extraordinary craftsmanship, such as the durable 12 oz canvas upper and glossy, egret rubber sidewall. The fashion mainstay gets revamped with a 100% recycled polyester upper, featuring a bold, all-over print inspired by ink marbling techniques. With an OrthoLite insole to help keep it comfortable.


This began on the basketball court and was redesigned for the final frontier. The Converse Chuck Taylor Alt Star re-imagines the canvas classic for space travel to worlds that is ahead of ours. The canvas upper comes with a removable star ankle patch and canvas overlays inspired by space suits. The textured midsole tape that reads “Far from Chuck,” set against an exaggerated toe bumper. With a kick-off license plate which allows for easy on and off. A marbled outsole print brings a nostalgic, yet future-facing appearance.


With its marbled, translucent foxing tape, the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star CX gives you a window into our comfort-first high top. Complete with classic Chuck Taylor All Star style, like a rubber toe bumper and toe cap, iconic lace-up design, and classic star ankle patch, this high top comes updated with our revolutionary CX foam midsole for lightweight, responsive comfort. With a comfortable, stretch canvas upper that moves with you.

90S NOW:

The Run Star Motion takes classic Converse DNA and pairs it with an ultra-modern, innovative midsole to completely redefine platform style. This expressive, lugged base elevates the cotton twill upper, made with a blend of at least 30% recycled cotton. A marble-printed faux leather star ankle patch brings in ’90s-inspired color for a touch of nostalgia in modern form. Pop-color tongue webbing matches back to the patch, giving the canvas tongue a bright, throwback touch. All supported by a CX sockliner and CX foam midsole for lightweight, maximum comfort. Run it back.
