Converse has released another banging colourway in the ever-popular Chuck Taylor 1970. Available in both High and Low top the Wolf Grey example of this classic silhouette will match up with every piece in your wardrobe. Mix them with shorts, denim, or your favourite pair of Dickies to finish off the weekend’s look with style. Is this the most versatile sneaker in streetwear right now?
The 1970s brought us significant cultural change, some of the best music ever created, and Converse decided to make some subtle tweaks to their sneaker line. Not least of these changes was a thicker sole and heavier canvas upper that added significant durability and comfort. The new style quickly became a staple piece and stayed in the wardrobe lineup for far longer… with scuffs and all.
While it started its life as a basketball shoe, the latest version from the sneaker giant comes equipped with aluminium eyelets, cushioned insoles, and detailed stitching. Triple stitch detailing, All-Star license plate and a series of muted colours add to the pure vintage look.
Fallen Front carry the 1970’s version in both Black and Parchment in High and Low tops all year round. We inject only the cleanest and freshest additions to our lineup available each season. The Wolf Grey ‘70 hits the mark.
Advancements to their sneakers weren’t the only thing Converse were up to during the 1970s. To start the decade off right (actually late 1969) the legend himself Chuck Taylor was inducted into the Basketball hall of fame. Chuck was the original player/manager for the Converse All-Stars team in the mid-1920s, as well as contributing to the company as both a salesman and promoter. His namesake shoe was the go-to choice for basketballers for numerous decades and later became a staple casual sneaker. Today the Chuck Taylor All Star is as popular as ever and is available in Black and White in both High and Low top options at Fallen Front.
Converses ‘other’ bestselling sneaker was also born in the 1970’s. The One Star was introduced in ’71 with a suede low top upper and brand-new star accent on the side. Equally as stylish with both shorts and your best denim, take a closer look here….
