Converse designs an athletic sneaker by drawing components from its signature Chuck 70 and the ERX260. The ladder is a basketball silhouette from the 90s and the Chuck 70 ERX260 model arrives in two colorway options -- black and white or natural ivory and gray. It takes Chuck 70's base as the foundation and infuses the overlaying panels of the ERX260.
Additionally, there are also bold 'CONS' branding accents, a tongue made from leather for texture contrast, and a heel clip at the back of the model. When the hybrid model comes together, it boasts technical and sporty design aesthetics that are true to the label's language. The signature sole unit rounds out the entire design with black trimming and a license plate with an emblem that reads "ALL STAR."
