How to style the ever-evolving Chuck Taylor - Part 1

If you’re an avid subscriber to the evolution theory, then you’ll no doubt agree that often the best things take millions of years to adapt, refine, and improve on the original.

Thankfully, we haven’t had to wait millions of years to witness the evolution of an icon - Converse’s cult shoe, the Chuck Taylor, rather 100 years instead.

Rocked by everyone from rebellious youths and too-cool-to-care skaters to the who’s who in Hollywood, the universal appeal of chucks throughout the years is undeniable.

To celebrate the centennial anniversary of the Chuck Taylor, Converse are showcasing their most iconic styles – past and present – to show the evolution of the Chuck Family throughout this time.

Encapsulating the daring spirit of youth, each style represents a pinnacle moment in the icon’s history, and celebrates the future direction the style is taking moving forward.

Chuck Taylor All Star
The one sneaker that started it all, the Chuck Taylor All Star is perfect in its simplicity. Timeless in its classic cotton canvas upper and vulcanised rubber sole, the style has grown to become much more than the original basketball shoe created in 1917. Keep it classic in how to style your originals, teamed with skinny jeans, a loose-fitting tee, and a skateboard for good measure.

Chuck Taylor All Star ‘70
Born out of a legendary era of basketball, the Chuck Taylor All Star ’70 is the ultimate throwback. Featuring vintage details like 12 oz. 100% organic cotton vans and higher rubber siding, this style is as archival as your dad’s vinyl collection. Celebrate all things ‘70s by pairing yours with flared jeans, a raglan-style tee, and retro-fitted trucker cap to top it off.
