Nike Flyknit has been on the scene for a minute, but even as part of the Nike Inc. family, Converse hadn’t featured the weave technology in any of their silhouettes to date. That all changes on April 27th. The Chuck Taylor All-Star, perhaps the most widely recognized sneaker silhouette in the game, has been given the Flyknit makeover for the first time ever. By taking a timeless silhouette and outfitting it with cutting edge technology, Converse has found a way to advance its core values while making the Chuck Taylor utterly contemporary.
The face of Converse’s latest release at Footaction is SoCal rapper, Vince Staples. As both an artist and an emergent style icon, Vince Staples is the consummate example of how to expand horizons while remaining grounded. Having toured around the world, rather than submitting to cliché hip hop lifestyle, Vince makes it a point to seek out experiences in new places that fuel his creativity and help him excel at his craft.
The past was just the beginning. The new Chuck Taylor All Star x Nike Flyknit drops on Thursday, April 27th, online and in select stores. See which of our stores will be carrying the release on Release Locator, or buy online at 10 am EDT on release day HERE.
