CONVERSE INVITES YOU TO DISCOVER YOUR EDGE OF STYLE 

South Africa, 30 January 2024 – Converse, a champion of creativity and self-expression, is encouraging fans to Discover their Edge of Style, as it adds elevated new styles to the De Luxe collection and rolls out a series of high heat collabs with female designers and creatives.  

This Summer, Converse advances style, fit, form and function with the addition of two new elevated styles that go beyond the expectations of the Chuck, mixing classic with Luxe. Joining the recently introduced and immediate fan favorite, the Chuck 70 De Luxe Heel, is the Chuck 70 De Luxe Wedge – which offers up to four inches of elevation – and the Chuck 70 De Luxe Squared.  

Both styles transform the brand’s iconic rounded rubber toe cap into one with angular, squared proportions for an entirely new dimension and expression, while evoking the Chuck Taylor’s notable DNA up top – featuring stitch detailing, octangular Converse patch and classic colorways synonymous with the brand.  

To launch the new ‘Edge of Style’ campaign, Converse becomes the catalyst for discovery enabling you to explore what it means to push beyond style limits.

The new De Luxe collection launches alongside a series of global high heat collabs with female creative collaborators including Martine Ali, Feng Chen Wang and Isabel Marant. Each collaborator is known for charting new paths and redefining the status quo, and Converse has offered the iconic Chuck Taylor silhouette as inspiration, and a catalyst for creativity to define the future of fashion.

CONVERSE & AWAKE NY TAP INTO THE ONE STAR’S CULTURAL STATUS

Marrying a skate and music-inspired heritage with the diverse spirit of New York, Converse, and Awake NY have introduced their first collaborative collection.  This debut capsule from the Converse x Awake NY partnership celebrates the burgeoning skate and alternative music scene that blossomed in New York City in the early ‘90s, which coincided with Converse’s reintroduction of the 1974 All Star as the One Star.

Launched by Queens native Angelo Baque in 2012, the Awake NY reflects the diversity that defines New York City’s landscape and captures the spirit and sensibility of the five boroughs.  This silhouette was embraced by and embedded into the skate and alternative communities, which popularized apparel and sneakers salvaged from the ‘70s.

“The One Star always connects back to the early ‘90s punk and alternative artists I really admired, whether it be Nirvana, The Smashing Pumpkins, or the Beastie Boys—music that typically you wouldn’t assume people where I’m from would listen to, or wear a pair of the One Star,” Baque says, reminiscing on his teenage years. “If you wore a pair of One Stars back then, you didn’t subscribe to the social norms.” This collaboration commemorates these memories.

The Converse x Awake NY capsule includes three takes on the One Star Pro, executed in black, blue, and white sand colorways. The Awake NY’s script logo is embroidered on the latter side of the vintage suede upper, which is completed by co-branded sock liners and license plates. The One Star Pro silhouette is crafted for skateboarders and features exceptional board feel and impact cushioning thanks to a CONS traction rubber outsole and molded CX sockliner. The silhouette’s low profile adds tonal flexibility, while a rubber-backed suede upper offers durability.
