Converse & A-COLD-WALL* Give The Chuck Taylor An All-Black Utility Update

Oct 1, 2020

Category: Style

Recently, Converse and A-COLD-WALL* collaborated on an eye-catching, all-white capsule that turned some of the footwear provider’s most iconic silhouettes into more contemporary, street-styled alternatives. Now, the pair are back with another take on the lauded Chuck Taylor All-Star — but this time, it’s shrouded in shadowy textiles.

The latest Converse x A-COLD-WALL* Chuck Taylor Lugged Sneaker arrives as an all-black edition of its counterpart, calling upon the same technical fabrics, design choices, and ruggedized exterior protection as its predecessor. Inspired by the natural forces of the world, as well as elemental effects like erosion and fossilization, A-COLD-WALL*’s Samuel Ross has gifted the shoe with a robust rubber outsole, zig-zag stitching, and a ruggedized black nylon upper. Furthermore, Ross states that his admiration for basketball, Brutalist architecture, and natural environments has a part to play in the shoe’s unique design, which bridges the gap between finely-tuned tailoring, precise craftsmanship, and gritty urban appeal. Head to Converse’s website to pick up a pair of your own for $160.
