The All Star Chuck Taylor Crater Is Made From At Least 40% Recycled Materials

The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star is unquestionably one of the most iconic footwear designs ever conceived, with its lineage dating back more than a century. And with Converse being under the ownership of Nike Inc. (starting in 2003), the Boston-based brand is now adopting the circular manufacturing ethos that the Northwest activewear juggernaut has increasingly employed in recent times.

Taking lessons learned from Nike’s envelope-pushing Space Hippe shoe, this new, more-environmentally-friendly take on the Chucks is composed of no less than 40% recycled materials. The latest addition to Nike’s ever-growing Crater lineup, the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Crater retains the distinctive silhouette of the original shoe while replacing its canvas upper and rubber sole construction with Crater Foam and “Morphlon blends,” which are made up of recycled polyester and repurposed post-industrial textile bits. Born out of an enormous collaborative effort involving over 100 individual part and full-time employees, the All Star Crater also sports a novel lacing system that requires markedly less raw material to produce. Shown in a trio of colors (thus far at least), the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Crater will be available on Converse’s website starting on July 23, with pricing having yet to be announced.
