As apart of Converse’s First String range, the latest collaborative release has enlisted the styling of Nigel Cabourn, coming together on the latest rendition of their Chuck Taylor 1970’s silhouette. Taking to the classic silhouette, Nigel Cabourn has wrapped the upper of the Chuck Taylor in a Ventile fabric upper a material from the WWII archives that Cabourn is all too familiar with. This off-white waterproof upper is accented by pops of red alongside the printed branding, midsole foxing, and embroidered ventilation holes. Of course this isn’t your normal Chuck Taylor, with all of the first string details from yesteryear such as higher foxing, upper reinforcement, arch cushion innersole, reworked toe box, and players name label inside the tongue to finish it all off.
The Nigel Cabourn Chuck Taylor All Star Hi 1970 will be releasing this Saturday the 29th of March in store at our Level 1, 15 McKillop Street location, with remaining pairs releasing online from 12pm the same day. Sizes US8-US12 will be available including half sizes, but remember to get in quick as numbers are limited.
