Converse Releases Two New Editions of Its Chuck Taylor '70 Hi

Converse's classic high-top silhouette — the Chuck Taylor '70 Hi, has been updated, boasting a monochromatic canvas upper in navy or Gym Red. At this point, the footwear style has proven to be a timeless staple. Converse consistently revamps and offers new fashion-forward uppers, whether it is independently or in collaboration with a designer.

For its newest release, the footwear company revamps its classic high-top silhouette with a tonal look that communicates grit and grunge. The latest Chuck Taylor '70 Hi is deliberately designed to carry a more worn-out look, playing on the common knowledge that new does not always look better in terms of footwear.

Of course, the kicks stay true to their origin, as Converse included its recognizable metallic eyelets, its branding patch, as well as some other key design elements.
