Chuck Taylor All Star 70s



THE HISTORY OF CONVERSE CHUCK TAYLOR ALL STAR

Conceived in 1917, nine years after the brand's creation, the Converse All Star was not initially named after Chuck Taylor. It was fifteen years later, in 1932, that the American brand affixed the name of its salesman, who was also a basketball player, to the cap of its emblematic model.

A classic that has never gone out of fashion, the Chuck Taylor, initially designed for basketball, has a rising upper. Made from canvas, it has a leather patch on the inside of the foot to protect the ankle and features the name of the brand, the model and the name of its ambassador, Chuck Taylor. Underneath this canvas base is a rubber sole for better grip.

In the mid-1930s, shortly before Converse became a partner in the 1936 Olympic Games and unveiled the classic white version of the Chuck Taylor, the pair was also revisited in a low-profile version. This silhouette was then worn by badminton champion Jack Purcell, who made it famous and gave it its name.
 

A TRAINER FOR MEN AND WOMEN 

The Converse Chuck Taylor has become the sneaker of choice for both men and women. Perfect with any outfit as it has so many variations, the Converse Chuck Taylor has surely been worn with everything and by everyone.

After 100 years of existence, the Chuck Taylor has crossed the generations and has seduced many celebrities. Among them, Elvis Presley was photographed with the original All Star, Snoop Dogg with the classic black and white version, Rihanna with a red colour, or Kurt Cobain with the low black and white upper.

Within Converse, there have been many variations of this shoe. It has even been revisited with a high, notched sole called the Converse Run Star Hike.

THE CONVERSE CHUCK TAYLOR AND HIS GLOBALLY SUCCESSFUL COLLABORATIONS 

Victim of its success, the Converse Chuck Taylor is world famous. In recent years, it has been revisited several times. One of the most famous collaborations of Converse concerns Comme des Garçons. The red heart, a trademark of the Japanese label, quickly became popular on the Chuck Taylor silhouette.

The Converse model has also been reinvented by designers such as Kim Jones and JW Anderson. Other brands such as Fear of God, Ambush and Off-White have also added their touch to this Converse.

French haute couture house, Dior, was directly inspired by the design of the Chuck Taylor for one of its models. Called B23, one of the sneakers Dior takes the curves of the Chuck Taylor and adds a touch of luxury.
