Subtle changes to the classic Converse model comes courtesy of Stussy.
Stussy’s history of collaborative efforts with Converse stretches back to 2011 with their spin on the Converse CX-Pro Ox. With almost yearly releases becoming common until 2017, the two brands haven’t crossed paths since, that is until the recently leaked image of the upcoming Stussy x Converse Chuck 70 Hi.
Alongside a rumored apparel collection, Stussy is able to subtly add its touch across the age-old fashion staple through a very small but noticeable redesign. Maintaining the classic look is the black canvas that covers the upper entirely, minus the standard rubber toecap and stitching that comes in white. Chrome metal eyelets pop between the aforementioned white stitching that runs up the siding. The literal star of the show is the re-designed Converse Star logo placed near the collar, mimicking the classic Stussy graffiti font. Looking inside the sneaker you’ll find a co-branded Stussy and Converse logo printed onto the insole. Rounding out the entire look is the white midsole with accenting black lining wrapping around.
The Stussy x Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star 70s Hi is set to releaes on Stussy on June 10th, 2022. A wider release is expected to follow shortly thereafter via Converse and select retailers online and in-store on June 16th. A Nike SNKRS release is set for September 1st. Releasing in men's sizing, the retail price is set at $110.
