With the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Crater, Converse’s 100-plus-year-old classic firmly evolves in the pursuit of sustainability, now with the Space Hippie vibe.
The All-Star has its non-negotiable aesthetic cues — the toe cap, the foxing tap, and the pinstripe. Remaining true to the look and feel of traditional canvas, getting the height right, and ensuring new patches reflect old values are critical to maintaining the shoe’s All Star-ness too.
For this latest offering Converse developed unique uppers that employ Morphlon blends, which feature recycled polyester and recycled post-industrial textile waste scraps and lend an emotional pull-through to traditional Chuck uppers.
The Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star Crater is now available through Converse.co.za in two colourways “Charcoal” and “Black” – for the retail price of R1,499.00 each.
