Converse and Slam Jam Deconstruct the Classic Chuck Taylor All Star

Published Sep 26 2021 at 6:37 PM GMT
  • Fresh off a collaboration with California eyewear company, GLCO, Slam Jam has collaborated with Converse on a timeless reinterpretation of the Chuck Taylor All Star.
  • As the shoe that arguably defined the 1970s, the Chuck 70 was an integral part of basketball culture, in terms of function and utility.
  • Slam Jam founder Luca Benini, who continues to draw inspiration from American culture from the '70s and '80s, sought to approach the classic silhouette through the lens of deconstruction.
  • The edges of the upper are frayed to incite a refined but modern punk-rock aesthetic.
  • The shoe comes with a white pinstripe rubber outsole, loose-lined black textile upper with a sleekly printed Slam Jam logo.
