A longstanding collaborative partnership that melds two brands who use their rich and diverse history as the pivot to their success, Converse and Nigel Cabourn have teamed up once again to reimagine one of the American footwear label’s best loved silhouette.
Part of Converse’s 1st String line, the collaborative duo take the iconic Chuck Taylor 1970s Ox silhouette and marry their unique aesthetics to the style that takes a distinctly different direction from the Chuck Taylor 1970 Hi which launched earlier in the year.
Sticking closely to the 1970′s OG design, Cabourn adds a military-charged vintage wash camouflage print to the canvas uppers whilst replacing the molded toecap for a tonal canvas panel. Classic decals still remain such as the crisp white midsole, red accent piping and bold red outsole.
The Converse 1st String x Nigel Cabourn Chuck Taylor 1970s Ox launches Friday 7th November 2014 via the Converse Launch Page.
