The Converse All Star Chuck ’70 is our re-crafted sneaker that uses modern details to celebrate the original Chuck Taylor All Star from the 1970s. It features a slightly higher rubber foxing, a cushioned footbed that provides long-lasting comfort and a more substantial rubber toe cap.
Additional vintage details include stitching on the sidewall and a heavier-grade canvas upper for comfort and durability. They join iconic Chuck Taylor attributes such as the star-centred ankle patch and vulcanised rubber outsole.

ALL STAR ORIGINS
Converse began in 1908 as a rubber shoe company specialising in galoshes. Soon after, we started using our rubber to make sneakers. In 1920, we renamed our canvas basketball sneaker the “All Star.” The name stuck. What didn’t stick was their intention. We made them to sink jump shots on the court. You, however, saw them as something more… and started wearing our sneakers to do whatever you wanted.
