Converse takes inspiration from outer space for its latest collection.
For its latest reiteration of the iconic Chuck Taylor All Star ‘70s, Converse gathers inspiration from monumental intergalactic events, which took place during the 1970’s era, to conjure up two sneakers, which make up the “Space” collection.
Constructed from a black and white graphical upper to resemble that of a rocket ship, the sneaker features 3M reflective detailing, to represent the ships exterior, whilst also adding to the intergalactic effect. The second pair of sneakers represents the splash down balloons that helped astronauts safely get back home within Earth’s atmosphere; composed from a nylon upper with a leather toecap, emulating the balloons sturdiness.
Both sneakers are available now at select Converse First String retailers. Don’t forget to let us know which pair you cop.
